WMC: October 2019
Over 90 people filled our church hall on Saturday 28th September for an afternoon tea party in aid of All We Can.
This was the last event of our second year of being a partner church, with the theme being that of sunshine — reflecting All We Can's work with solar panels and irrigation in Malawi.
Sandwiches, scones, and cakes were thoroughly enjoyed along with copious amounts of tea.
Our thanks to Eileen and her vast army of helpers who made the event so enjoyable and such a success.
The amazing figure of £1,209 was raised — thank you all for your generosity.
Our third year of being a partner Church began the following day with our Harvest Festival and the introduction of this year's theme "Deepen your roots" with potatoes in Ethiopia.
