PLANT SALE – Sue Goldby & Friends

Not to be outdone by the current COVID restrictions, Sue and her friends held two plant sales in her front garden.

She took plants from cuttings and divided plants from her neighbours
and advertised her event on their local WhatsApp group.

Sue and her friends raised just under £200 for us.

 

SOUP and PUDDING LUNCH EVENT – Sue Ward

Sue and her friends and neighbours gathered to support
Children in Distress, to socialise and to chat to friends.

She organised a ‘Bring and Buy’ cake stall,
a raffle and a stall of handmade cards, small gifts, and books.

About forty-five people came together to eat the twenty-five litres of soup and numerous delicious puddings! Many others who could not come kindly sent donations.

Sue’s lunch raised an amazing total of £1,585


ANNUAL MAY DAY WALK – Llantwit Major

Our friends at Llantwit Major took part in their annual May Day Walk from the small village of St Brides Major, a few miles west of Llantwit Major, and followed an uphill and down dale path to another part of the Glamorgan Heritage Coast at Southerndown.

Around thirty people including children took part in the walk,
raising a whopping  £1,000 for Children In Distress.

 

BOOM BANG RALLY – Chris Samuels & Friends  

Canon Chris Samuels, our Vice Chair of Trustees, Andrew Clouting, a retired GP, and Alistair Jones, solicitor, headed to “the roof of the world” to raise money for a new roof for St Margaret’s hospice.

Heading off from Chester and making their way through France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark and eventually Norway, they made their way to the Artic circle in a Volvo V 70 classic banger.

They raised an incredible £9,643.10.
