A great start to our 2020 charity coffee mornings as we met right at the start of the New Year to raise £120 for ‘Mind’, who offer support and campaign to provide better provision for those suffering from mental health issues. We had a full house this morning and lots of chat as everyone shared their Christmas news. Many thanks to Fiona, Jane and Mary, who provided us with our drinks and cakes and to all who attended.
A busy festive morning raising £140 for Coventry Open Christmas. Much talk about Mavis who will be much missed by many at the chapel, and we can't believe that she was with us as usual at the November coffee morning, chatting to people and having her hair done! The stollen cake was lovely and there was a big raffle.
A good turn out again for our monthly coffee morning where we met to support the charity ‘Different Strokes’ - a charity who aim to inform and support younger victims of this unfortunate and life changing disease. Lots of chatter as I’m sure quite a few of our attendees were already starting to share their Christmas plans!
We raised the healthy sum of £120 to send to ‘Different Strokes’ and many thanks to Dave and Manny who hosted our event and provided us with some lovely home made cakes!
The annual Macmillan Coffee Morning which took place at the chapel at the end of October was brilliantly supported by our local and chapel communities; we boasted a full house with additional tables needing to be set up at the back of the chapel and attendees were more than happy to have a go at our raffle and Macmillan games. Homemade cakes were generously brought in and a full team of washer-uppers were engaged almost non-stop in our newly refurbished kitchen! With additional donations from "The Gate" pub we raised the magnificent sum of £525 which has now been forwarded to this great cause.
Many thanks to all who attended and supported in any way to make this extra coffee morning a real success.
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!
