Tuesday Coffee Mornings

Recycled Cards- Donations!

posted 13 Apr 2018, 05:15 by Richard Jones

During February we made the following donations:-

                                    R N L I                                    £25

                                    Diabetes UK                         £25

                                    Cancer UK                £25

The total donations made so far this year is       £175.00

Since  cards have been on sale in Church we have been able to make donations to many and various charitable causes, both locally, nationally and internationally.

The total has now exceeded £10,000.00 – it is in fact £10,101.95

It is thanks to your generosity, both in donating cards to us to recycle and buying our cards, that we have been able to achieve this remarkable total. Thanks to you all! 

We couldn’t do it without you!

Thank you, the Card Ladies
