BB Seniors raise funds for Ukraine
The three Senior Boys, appalled at what was unfolding in Ukraine, resolved to do something to help. Boys' Brigade Headquarters advised that the most effective way was by fundraising — but what to organise at short notice?
They decided to hold an Afternoon Tea event, and so Friday night saw them staying on after the usual BB meeting, for a bake-off in the church kitchen. By 2.30am, they had made flapjack, cupcakes, a coffee sponge, brownies and chocolate chip cookies — and it was time to turn in for the night!
They were busy with other activities the following morning, but arrived back at the church after midday to prepare for the event. Tables had been set, and they were surprised and grateful to receive a large number of additional cakes and biscuits from church well-wishers.
Doors opened at 2 o'clock, and soon they were busy serving the many folk who had turned up to support their initiative. They were overwhelmed by their generosity — it was clear that helping the people of Ukraine was very much on peoples' minds.
The final reckoning? They had raised the amazing sum of £927.23, which is now winging its way to the Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine appeal.
Thank you, Boys, for your initiative, and thank you, church folk, for your incredible support.
