Coffee Morning - St Helen's Church
Cornhill Church raises over £300 for cancer charity
The Parish Church of St Helen, Cornhill on Tweed, held a Coffee Morning with a bit of a difference on Saturday 6th June.
The event was held in the church itself … and raised over £300 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Vicar of Cornhill, the Revd Rob Kelsey, said that, ‘We’d always planned to share the proceeds of the Coffee Morning with the Village Shop’s fundraising efforts for Macmillan Cancer Support. We were really pleased to raise over £600 in total, and to pass on a cheque for more than £300.’
Lynda Waite, from Cornhill Village Shop, said, ‘A huge thank you to everyone from St Helen’s Church for their fantastic fundraising efforts. Your very kind donation to our ongoing Macmillan Cancer Support total is greatly appreciated, and helps us bring the total amount raised so far to over £15,000. Thanks again!’
Rob added, ‘The staff at the Village Shop were encouraging customers to attend the Coffee Morning, so it was something of a joint effort. It’s good when the church and the shop can work together in this way.’
Lynda went on to say that the Village Shop’s next fundraising effort for Macmillan Cancer Support will be a Summer Fair at Cornhill House, by kind permission of Richard Palmer, on Sunday 26th July, from 12 noon till 4pm. Anyone wishing to have a stall should call Lynda on (01890) 883313.
