Just to let you all know – we had a terrific Pancake Party on Saturday 9th March! Many thanks to all those who attended and supported this worthy event. A fantastic amount of £127.00 was raised for Sightsavers. The pancakes were delicious – a huge “Thank you” to Edythe for making them! Also, we must thank those who planned, organised, served, washed up and just made this event happen!Sightsavers is a charity which supports people with sight impairment abroad. For,£10, medication can be provided to prevent 50 families from developing river blindness, for £30 one person can be saved from blindness by treating cateracts and for £60 an entire community can be protected against trachoma, which is the world’s leading infectious cause of blindness.
We are grateful for the generosity of the fellowship and this amount will make a big difference, particulary as the Government will match our donation pound for pound so that Sightsavers will receive double what we have raised.
Thank you to all!
