This month the Ladies Fellowship again held a fundraising evening for the ‘Helping Hand’ when members brought wrapped gifts worth £1 or more.
No names are on the parcels so when members buy a parcel the contents are a complete surprise. We had some fun buying and opening the parcels as well as buying individually crafted cards donated by Joan Wilkinson. The sum raised was £43.
Major Alma Brown, in her benediction and thought, reminded us of occasions when she had received a special gift and shared some thoughts about gifts. She also gave everyone a specially wrapped little gift to open at home. (They contained a helpful Bible verse).
We thanked our new leader, Sharon Smith, for organising the evening and preparing next year’s programme.
