Fundraising for Congo School for Peace

Congo School for Peace Leaflet

Most parishioners will be aware that Mary Ellwood – with the help of some willing helpers! – usually organises a “Christmas Stall in the Parish Hall” to raise funds for this very worthwhile Charitable enterprise.

They have achieved wonders over the years and deserve the support of all of us.

Sadly, this year it will not be possible to do the usual “Hands On ” shopping for the great bargains Mary has collected.  Instead we are trying a range of different ways of letting you know what is available.

We hope to tempt you to buy some of these brand new articles – it’s not a Jumble Sale!    These might be for your self or they could make attractive gifts for family and friends.

Here is the initial list of items available;  with some photographs to give you an idea of what goods actually look like!

If you are at all interested in amy of the items, please call Mary Ellwood on 01502 716 960 and she will arrange a mutually convenient time and place to meet and view the article(s) of interest – all with no commitment!
