I am sorry you will all be missing Abingdon Fair on Tuesday to come along to our meeting but I’m sure we will all have a much jollier evening.
We will start the evening with a talk from Al Hopkins from the Lowland Search and Rescue Team. This will be followed by a Bring and Share Supper – so please, if you can bring something along that we can all share. (It doesn’t need to be huge or necessarily homemade). We would also like to receive donations for the local food bank – in the past you have all been really generous so I hope you will continue to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Cereals, pasta, tea bags, sugar, coffee, tinned vegetables, tinned pies, rice etc – all are very welcome. The sales table will be out again so please have a look and see if there is anything which takes your fancy.
Last month the sales table raised £10.70, the raffle £21 and the tea money £14.60, so in total we raised £46.30 for funds.
