The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 7 March was in aid of Guide Dogs for The Blind. The following is a message from Angela Gage, our local coordinator for the charity:
‘To all of you who supported the coffee morning in aid of Guide Dogs, a huge thank you from the Guide Dogs staff, from the people with sight loss, from the dogs whose dinners you provide and from myself.
These dogs help people to be independent and often fulfil their dreams. They provide companionship, support and protection as well as enabling their owners to socialise. I was therefore thrilled to be able to send a cheque for £300 to the charity from us all.
I also want to thanks Beth at the Coach House and to Margaret, Carol, Janet and Paddy for their help with the raffle. Angela’
The coffee morning held in the Coach House Inn on Saturday 5 October between 10.00 to 12.00 am was aid of the Rosedale History Society. There were photographic displays, including Land of Iron work-in-progress updates along with the customary raffle and cake sales, all of which raised £215 for the Society – thanks to all who contributed.
Many thanks also the Beth from the Coach House and to Margaret, Carol and Janet for running the raffle.
The next coffee morning on Saturday 2 November will be the popular craft fair sponsored by the Rosedale WI. Also there will be another chance to buy the new and colourful Rosedale 2020 calendar at £10 per copy, so come along then, enjoy the coffee, cakes and craft displays and get some early Christmas presents in the bag.
A good turnout of 50 people, both local and visiting, attended a very interesting and entertaining evening presented by Angus Ashworth in St Mary and St Lawrence Church, Rosedale Abbey. Angus talked about his start in the auctioneering business, his recent appearances in the BBC’s Antiques Road Trip programme (a new series is due to be shown shortly) and also discussed various items brought in by members of the audience.
The evening concluded with a quickfire auction of two items donated, an antique map of North Yorkshire which went for £130 and a signed copy of the new Rosedale 2020 Calendar which went for a very creditable £32. In all the evening raised around £700 for the church repair appeal thanks to the generosity of all who attended. Thanks also to all who brought in food for the buffet and who contributed to the wines on offer.
The Rosedale 2020 calendar is now on sale in Abbey Stores and will also be available at the next Coffee Morning (Rosedale History Society) on Saturday 5 October in the Coach House Inn, Rosedale Abbey. Copies cost £10 each in aid of the Save Rosedale Abbey Church Appeal – excellent Christmas presents and very useful at home too!
APPEAL UPDATE: Thanks to recent calendar sales and further donations from the Antiques Evening the Church Appeal now stands at £29,540.
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.
