Cathedral Archer project harvest appeal –
Thanks to everyone for the many contributions to the Cathedral Archer Project at our Harvest service. It was good to hear more about the work of the Archer Project from Tim Renshaw, and more thanks go to the staff at the New Leaf Plant Centre for their very generous offering of six boxes of food, toiletries and clothing.
SHARE Feedback I just wanted to give you some feedback on the SHARE donations you generously made. The children’s village we work with, Elshadai, had a nurse start with them over a year ago. Her role is primarily the healthcare of the children (checking their vaccines, looking after them if they are unwell etc.), plus enhancing health promotion, wellbeing and staff health initiatives. Her role was going to cease this year owing to a deficit in central funds but, thanks to the money we raised from your efforts, we were able to employ her for another year. Anne and Jane (SHARE volunteers) are flying out now to meet her, review her work and try and help gain some objective measure of her impact so we can help gain some long term funding support as we believe it’s a really important role. So thank you for supporting us last year which enables projects like this to continue.
The Anniversary lunch raised £53.95 for Sarcoma UK. It was a great opportunity to raise money whilst enjoying good food and pleasant company.
Those who bought the last quiz and wrestled with Rachael’s obscure hair styles raised almost £95. A new quiz will be on sale at the coffee morning on 15th June as well as from the kitchen servery counter.
