The Cards for Good Causes Charity Christmas Card Shop has had another successful year. The total sum raised is £15,200. The shop was opened by Gordon Bonham 30 years ago, and I have had the privilege of organising the running of the shop for the past 17 years. However, I have decided that it is now time to retire. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the church members who very kindly joined the volunteers from the charities to work in the shop. I cannot name all of you as the list is so long. Your help has been much appreciated. Also, a big thank you to the team of managers, past and present. It would have been an impossible task without their help. The present team are – Bob Bucknell, Steve Marks, John Miskin, Geoff Nicholson, Arthur Sara, Brian Taylor and Peter Watkins. A big thank you for being able to use the church and to all who made purchases in the shop. Finally, I am pleased to announce that John Miskin is to take over the running of the shop and I wish him every success. Cliff Darlington.
