WMC: June 2018
Thank You from Julie
Thank you just doesn't seem enough after the wonderful surprise you gave me 3 weeks ago.
It was such a surprise I could hardly believe it was happening and I then had to finish off the Sunday lunch !!
I attempted to read all the cards on the evening but had to stop half way through when the tears stopped me from seeing the words. You were all so generous with your kind words and generous giving.
I have not yet spent the £500. I have had so many boxes I don't know where to put them so haven't yet had time to make a cake!
I will treasure your kindness always, and I don't intend giving up being part of Wantage Methodist Church for a long time yet.
