Thank you to everyone who bought cakes and tea or made donations at the Sale in the Jubilee Hall at the end of November. The proceeds went to sponsor my son’s marathon in aid of Asthma UK. We raised over £100 so thank you all for your support.

The marathon is in April so if anyone would still like to sponsor Chris then please go to https://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/fundraiser-display/showROFundraiserPage?userUrl=ChrisBrooks16&pageUrl=1 This page also explains why this cause is so important to my family. Many thanks

The Christian Aid Coffee morning and Christmas Card sale on Friday 8th November was a great success raising an amazing £832.24 and a further £238.74 for cards. Thank you so much to all who kindly supported the Christmas Appeal “Helping mothers use their God given gifts to create new lives for their families and escape poverty”. Generous donations, willing helpers, amazing gifts created, plus delicious cakes and produce provided. All making a fun and sociable morning! Thank you again.

The coffee morning and sale in the Jubilee Hall on Saturday 19th October in aid of Parkinson’s UK was a huge success. At the close of the event we had raised £698.51 which I think was amazing. Since then more contributions have been received so a total of £810 has been sent to Parkinson’s UK. I’d like to thank all who donated, those who helped and those who came along and joined in the wonderful atmosphere at the Hall. What a fantastic raffle – there was a prize to suit every taste.
