Karen Booker: May 2016
Very many thanks to all of you who made Saturday's Clothes Sale such a happy and successful event, whether you helped set up or clear up, baked cake, served tea, sold clothes or simply came to support us by buying our pre-loved outfits.
We achieved our goal of just over £1000-00 for Fabienne's charity in Cameroon, and with your help, can further her work there, to teach young women skills that lead to independent businesses, thus transforming lives and economies.
The Show stoppers were undoubtedly Fabienne in Cameroon outfit, and Rev Keith Underhill's strawberry cake!
Thank you all!
