Congratulations to Isabel Usher who organised a Coffee & Cakes morning in the church on 14th March in aid of Comic Relief. She and her helpers put on a fun morning with gorgeous cakes. She has sent this message:
I would like to give a VERY BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped me and Granddad to raise £358.06 for Comic Relief at the Coffee & Cake Morning at Shorne Church on Saturday 14th March. There may be some more money to come and it would be great to get it up to £400.00. I will let you know if we do it. We were given £38.00 by Granddad’s neighbours before we even started, so a big thank you to them too. So many people brought cakes of all flavours, shapes and sizes and we all had great fun painting balloons (Kiki won the prize), making paper aeroplanes, seeing how many marbles could be put in a hole in an upside down flowerpot (Inigo won the prize) and of course eating lots of cake and chatting to friends. I loved dressing up for the morning with Comic Relief funny nose, tee shirt, tights and bobbles for my hair. Granddad had a funny nose and a Comic Relief apron. Granddad and I are thinking of making cakes, jams etc on a regular basis to help raise money for the Church Roof Fund so if you would like to place an order please let Granddad know. Lots of love, Isabel Usher xx
STOP PRESS! Granddad has just telephoned me to say that we have had 4 more gifts of money and we have made it to £400.00! Thank you all so much.
