May Market Result

We had a sunny morning for our May Market — the rain holding off until we had cleared up. A good number of people called in to browse, buy and sit down to chat over a cuppa and cake.

The grand total for church funds was £447.95, comprising Café £84, Cakes £90.60, Books £64.65, Plants £138.70 and Fancy Goods £70. Thank you to everyone who took part, donated goods to sell or came on the day with open purses.

The proceeds of Sheila's craft stall went to Fabienne's Cameroon sewing project. She raised a total of £163.10 from her stalls at the clothes sale and the May Market.
