The Macmillan Coffee Morning was held today. It was brilliantly supported by all the Meths members and scores from the village besides raising an amazing £364. The collecting bucket was then taken up to the Gate public house where their weekend whip round realised a further £82. So a total of £446 is being sent to Macmillan for our efforts and shortly we should receive an official Thank you to all who supported us.
A well attended coffee morning which was one of the first wet days after a lovely warm September. It also coincided virtually to the day with the centenary of the foundation stone being laid on October 4th 100 years previously. We collected £78 for Water Aid. This is the cost of a hand washing station at a school in Africa plus 500 sachets of oral rehydration salts. These replace the vital sugar, salt and minerals that children lose through diarrhoea and can be given at home without resort to a clinic. Many thanks for helping to save the lives of vulnerable people who have no choice but to drink water which is contaminated.
