Lyndsey says that if you feel too shy you don’t have to do the class at Rosedale Reading Room, but why not pop in for a coffee, buy some raffle tickets and watch the fun while supporting this great cause.
The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey, on Saturday 6 April raised the excellent sum of £310 for the Unicorn Centre/Riding for The Disabled:
The usual thanks go to all who contributed raffle prizes, to Margaret, Carol and Janet for organising the raffle and to Dave and Ali at the Coach House for the ever generous hosting of these popular local events.
The next Coffee Morning will be on Saturday 4 May from 10.00 to 12.00am in support of Marie Curie Cancer Carers – please come along to enjoy the company and support a very good cause.
On BBC Radio York at around 8.00pm on Wednesday 3 April on the programme ‘God’s Own Countyfile’ David Haddon-Reece and Linda Blackburne will be interviewed about our forthcoming Wedding Dress Festival which will take place in the church from Saturday 25 May to Sunday 2 June in order to raise more badly needed funds for the church repair project.
More details about the festival itself will be published shortly – watch this space!
Craig and Helen hosted a fund raising cheese and wine party at the Abbey Stores on Friday evening in aid of Hospices UK. Enjoyable wines and cheeses from around the world and a very tempting raffle helped raise the magnificent total of £810.50.
Helen and Nicola have set themselves a target of £4500 and are planning a number of other fund raising events in the next twelvemonth, including an arduous Arctic challenge in January 2020 when they will travel to northern Finland to take part in snowshoe treks, cross-country skiing and dog sledding, all in expected minus 30c temperatures!
For further details call Craig and Helen on 01751 417475.
