Bath Quakers joined the Bath Central United Reform Church (BCURC) in a mid-October coffee morning and sale. Margaret Heath writes:
The BRURC coffee morning was well attended, with craft stalls selling home produce, crafts and cards.
Jane Tollyfield, who is in charge of the Central URC Friday coffee mornings, has deservedly had profuse thanks for allowing the Friends tables from which to sell our recycled cards and home made goodies for the Somerset Churches Trust on 18 October. There was a large and friendly gathering with plenty of networking and our Friends’ sales team was kept busy, as were the washers up. Prices were low so not a huge amount was made but other sales and donations will enable the URC and us to give a respectable cheque to the Somerset Chrurches Trust.
The unsold and the newly recycled cards, amounting to over 400 in all, are in my flat. Any Friend or friend of Friend is most welcome to come and browse. Please e-mail or ring up first (contact details in green book). Suggestions of other sales outlets welcome; we already have one good invitation. Cards will usually be on sale after Meeting on Sundays; not all the baskets but a selection of choice cards.
Please continue to give me your used cards. After Christmas proceeds from sales will go to a Quaker charity; one has already been proposed. It is not for me to decide.
It is however, I think, for me to thank all who contributed to the success of our shared event. Thank you.
