Our post church cup of tea and coffee inspired some of our younger members to lend a hand. They did a fabulous job with the youngest demanding more cups to the demands of the washer up!
Quite a busy morning raising money for our own Methodist chapel. This year we raised a magnificent £148.50.
We met today to support the small charity ‘Railway Children’ who reach out to help homeless street children in India, Africa and also in the UK. Our youngest attendee this morning was Baby Chester who was introduced to many by proud Grandma Carol Morgan! He seemed very happy to join us and of course was much admired! We were a little lower in numbers than usual - possibly the wet and windy morning had kept some folk at home - but we still raised a healthy £100 to send to this charity. Thank you to Pauline and Phil for being our hosts and making sure that we were well supplied with coffee and cakes!
Quiz master Vincent Coggins put us through our paces on Saturday evening as eight teams of six tested their grey matter to answer a variety of questions in our annual quiz. Only a handful of points separated the first three teams and congratulations to the victors! We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening and of course our fish and chip supper. Many thanks to Sue and Malcolm Wagg, Valerie and Colin Bowerman and Vincent and Christine Coggins for all their hard work serving us all with our supper and making teas.
This entertaining evening resulted in a healthy profit of £164 for chapel funds.
Our coffee morning this month was in aid of ‘Myaware’ the charity who offer support and carry out research into the causes and treatment of the debilitating condition of Myasthenia Gravis. This little known neurological disease causes a distressing loss of muscle power and consequently can make normal movements and activity very difficult. Our supporters braved a very blustery and rather wet March morning to gather in the school room but once installed there was plenty of chat and merriment amongst all. A generous sum of £100 will be sent to Myaware this month.
