We have had 2 very good donations recently; one of £500 from The Eleanor Rathbone Trust and one for £200 form The Proven Family Trust. I sent about 50 letters out to various Charity Trusts asking for donations. It’s worked up to now.

So, as you can see, we have had a very busy and successful year. However, we would like a little more help. Is there anyone out there who would like to lend a hand now and again? Perhaps you could organise a quiz night or jumble sale or coffee morning. Anything would be welcome.

Thank you.

Craft Fair in the Pavilion, Birkenhead Park

I think the people in Birkenhead must be getting fed up with us by now. (Only kidding) They have been very generous. This was anew craft fair that hadn’t been there before and we were offered a free table as we are a charity. We couldn’t miss this opportunity to get to know other stall-holders and raise even more for the charity. It was over the 2 days but only from 11.00am to 3.00pm. We finished the weekend taking £225.00.

Cheltenham Race Course

We were at Cheltenham Race Course for the whole weekend, not for the racing this time, but with the Ladies Association of Barbershop Singers. We took everything we had to sell as we knew there would be over 3000 people there for the weekend, mainly ladies. We sold mainly jewellery and some cards and framed pictures and we made £860 all together. It was a strenuous weekend, but worth while.
