- This event has passed.
There is a whole team of them running this – aside of her husband and herself – and 4 charities in total will be supported.
We have hired a room at our village hall on 1 September.
When: Sunday 1 September 2013 – 2.00 – 4.30pm
Where: Chilbolton Village Hall, near Stockbridge, Hampshire
“We have a good sized car park there. It would be great to see other people from Hampshire if they want to join us.
We will be serving homemade cream teas plus tea and cake.
We will also be selling homemade cakes to take away, jam/chutneys/marmalades (for which I am well known in my village!), my friends handmade cards, and her husband’s home made bread.
Plus we will have a raffle and other games for people to enter/play while they enjoy their tea.
We can seat 32 at one time but we hope people will come throughout the afternoon and if the weather is good we can put more tables outside.
We have advertised it in our village magazine and are emailing friends outside the village to encourage them to come.
We had to pay a small fee to hire the room and have friends offering to help us make cakes and serve on the day.
We will display all the MDS marketing material to raise awareness.
We hope it will be a lovely village event as well as a great fundraiser.”
Thank you so much Sue, Colin and all the baking team of Chilbolton!
We look forward to the feedback and the photos of the event.
It is not the first time Sue has organised something similar.
She told us: “The last time we ran a coffee morning in our kitchen we raised £350 so I am hopeful we will do well.”
They also did a car boot sale.
Here is how she set it up:
“My friend and I cleared out our cupboards and our lofts and combined all our items and then shared a pitch on a Sunday morning two weeks ago at the Winchester car boot sale.
I also made some cakes and sold those.
It was an early start but we raised £65 (after taking out our pitch fee) which were pleased about.
We didn’t sell it all but a charity shop got the items that were left over.
We had great fun and met loads of people.
One person even gave us a donation without buying anything when we told him we were raising funds for charity.”
We think this is fabulous – and raises lots of awareness about MDS too!
Thank you so much Sue and friend!!
