On Saturday 28th July our Annual Charity Day was held at St Andrews to great success.  We had a large turnout of members, family and friends who enjoyed making a felt biscornu or brought their own sewing, which was lovely to see.  We saw Japanese Folded Patchwork, Miniature Log Cabin Blocks and a Jubilee Tapestry Cushion which made the day very diverse and interesting, especially to the younger generation who also came on the day.
Many people should be thanked for helping on the day: Maureen Robinson who was our tea/coffee lady and also supplied a selection of lovely sandwiches, Marie Warburton from the Merseyside branch of the Guild who provided our raffle prizes (which included a cross-stitched biscornu which was stunning and won by me!), to everyone for bringing many sales items, cakes, pastries and scones which created a wonderful lunch enjoyed by all.
The donations flooded in with a total (increased at 10pm that night!) to £500 – an amazing amount!
Our charity this year will make really good use of our efforts to provide outings, books, arts and crafts to patients in Grianagh Court, which is a Mental Health Service facility who receive little funding.
Well done everyone and my grateful thanks for all your support.
