A great turnout again for our August coffee morning where we raised funds for ‘Back Up’ a charity supporting people who have had their lives changed through major spinal injuries. We welcomed some new faces this morning and some visiting friends and between us we raised the healthy sum of £125 to send to this charity. Many thanks to Dave and Manny Williams who were our hosts this morning, providing us with some great homemade cakes, and of course to all our generous supporters who come along for a good chat and a cuppa.
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....
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!
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.
A great turnout, most of our regulars and some new faces, at our first charity coffee of 2019. Everyone was in cheerful mood and happy to reflect back on how Christmas had been spent! Thanks to Fiona and Mary who hosted our coffee morning this month and who spread out a fine array of cream meringues, cakes and of course the inevitable left over mince pies for us. So much for the New Year diet and Resolutions......
A great start to our monthly gatherings and a healthy £125 raised for Prostate Cancer, our January charity.
The coffee morning today was in aid of the Salvation Army. We made £125, which included £10 for a beautiful Christmas wreath which was donated. Sheilas's daughter makes them in aid of cancer research and takes orders at £15 each. There was a good turn out, considering it was a wet morning.
A busy turnout yesterday on a crisp but sunny morning where we met to chat and raise some funds for BLESMA, the charity who support those British ex servicemen who have lost limbs in all conflicts since WW1. We learnt something about the services and support this charity provide and it seemed an appropriate one to support during our month of Remembrance. Thanks to Dave and Manny for hosting this month and to all supporters who helped us to raise £100 for BLESMA.
A bright sunny day with £115 raised for Bone Cancer Research Trust. It was also a time to celebrate the Golden Wedding of Vincent and Christine who got married at the church in 1968. A lovely cake was shared by all.
