Clif Darlington: January 2016
I wish to report that the Card for Good Causes card shop has had another successful year. The total raised was £16,400. I very much appreciate the help from members of the church who joined volunteers from the charities to work in the shop. Also, I give 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, Geoff Nicholson, Arthur Sara and Peter Watkins. Finally, a big thank you for being able to use the church and to all of you who made purchases in the shop.
