Internet access and basic computer knowledge is required. For more details, speak to Jim.

Message from Christian Aid

Dear Supporter

First of all, may I wish you and your family a very happy New Year.

Many thanks

May I thank you, too, for your commitment to Christian Aid over the past twelve months. In particular, thanks to all who came along to the Ashmore Park Choir Christmas Concert in St Thomas’s Church on December 10th when £1,211 was raised for Christian Aid.

Thanks, too, for promoting the Winter Quiz. I’ve received £279 so far from the sale of quiz-sheets, but I know that there is still cash to be sent in. I’d be grateful if you could let me have this as soon as possible.

Quiz Evening
Our next fundraising venture is a Quiz Evening at Springdale Methodist Church on Saturday 8th February and I should be most grateful if you would display the attached poster at your church, publicise the event and print off some tickets (also attached) to sell.

Last year’s quiz evening at Oldfallings United Reformed Church was so well attended that we need to have a good idea of ticket sales to make sure we can accommodate everyone. So I’ll get in touch at the end of this month to see how sales are going. We would really prefer it if tickets were purchased in advance rather than at the door.

I shall be running a raffle at the Quiz and would welcome offers of prizes. These could be brought along on the night but I need to know about them in advance

Looking well ahead, we shall be arranging a Christian Aid Week Sponsored Walk at Northycote Farm again this year – on Saturday 17th May. Put it down now in your brand new shiny 2014 diary.

Once again, very best New Year wishes


Social and Fundraising notice

Our District Church Council (DCC) has begun a system of sub-groups to organise various aspects of our church life. One of these is aimed at social and fundraising events. In the Autumn we had two successful events; a quiz and a karaoke.
It would be good to have further suggestions and more people to help get those ideas underway. If you are interested in helping or making suggestions please let Dot know (07702548161) or come to 211 Marsh Lane on Thursday 27th February at 7.30pm when a programme for the year can be drawn up.
