A really well attended morning which raised over £170 for in aid of Parkinsons disease. Ann Pointer had made Mrs Taylor a cake for her 90th birthday, which was cut up and shared round the tables. It was so busy that the serving team almost ran out of cups and saucers.
A lovely sunny morning encouraged a good turnout at our June coffee morning when we met to raise some funds for Breast Cancer research. Some delicious homemade cakes were on offer and a good collection of donated raffle prizes all helping to raise our highest total so far this year of £140. Thanks to Chris and Sue and families for hosting our event this month and of course to all our generous attendees.
Bo, our beautifully behaved visiting pooch, spends her coffee morning under the table, hoping for dropped biscuits....
Brian came and sang for us and the concert was a big success raising a total of £180 to church funds. Thank you to all who attended enjoying a splendid evening and especially to Brian for entertaining us again.
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.
