Coffee morning result

Well done Frensham & Dockenfield (and friends) for raising the total amount of £1,499.27 for MacMillan, including Gift Aid. A big thank you to everyone that came and donated to such a good cause and all those kind people who made some delicious cakes, and donated ones from the shop. Well done to Sue and her team for making it all happen.

MacMillan Coffee Morning 2015

posted 21 Sep 2015, 04:03 by Nick Houston   [ updated 21 Sep 2015, 05:37 ]

Friday 25th September at the Cricket Pavilion in Frensham.  It starts at 10 am and finishes at midday.  To help raise money we ask if anyone is willing to bake a cake, cookies or brownies.  Please pop your name and the item you will be making on the list on the notice board.  If baking is not something you like to do,  buying an item from the shop would also be good.  

Lets pray for good weather it makes such a difference.  We look forward to seeing as many people as possible so ask your friends, neighbours and family members to come.  Look forward to seeing you all on the day.  

If you are unable to attend but would like to donate there are gift aid forms and box in the shop in the week before the event.
