Cliff Darlington: January 2017
I wish to report that the card shop for the Cards For Good Causes group of charities has had another successful year. The total sum raised was £16,660, a slight increase on last year. I very much appreciate the help from members of the church who joined the volunteers from the charities to work in the shop. Also, a big thank you to the team of managers, it would have been an impossible task without their help. They are — Bob Bucknell, Steve Marks, John Miskin, Geoff Nicholson, Arthur Sara and Peter Watkins. Finally, a very big thank you for being able to use the church and to all of you who made purchases in the shop. Cliff Darlington
