Having raised money for Ovacome in my yard sale last July I decided to take part in the Big Coffee Morning for MacMillan this week! I do not, however, 'do' cake and coffee making requires a lot of effort to make fresh coffee all the time. Add to this the fact that most of my friends prefer evening socialising, with a little alcoholic lubricant, so I had an alternative coffee morning in the form of a Pate Wine & Cheese evening. My wonderful friends helped me to raise £336 for MacMillan (those wonderful nurses who support us all) and we had a great time!
Today I am exhausted of course but so satisfied with the result. The wine Pate cheese and bread cost £57, which I donated along with the plates, napkins, plastic cutlery and raffle tickets (a further £7.50). I feel very grateful to all those who supported the evening, donated raffle prizes, and were prepared to bay for plastic cheese and wine from a wine box!
Basking in the warm glow of a job well done!
