SATURDAY 18 NOVEMBER 2017
In progressing our Fund Raising Events to support the Church Finances and the Moncreiff Development Fund, two meetings of representatives from all organisations have taken place on 22 February and 29 March 2017.
As a result, it has been decided to have a Christmas Fayre within the Church on SATURDAY 18 NOVEMBER 2017.
Each Organisation attached to the Church has enthusiastically committed their respective teams in the support of the Event. Each Organisation both youth and adult have taken on board the preparation, planning and running of a particular event from Christmas Decorations/Cake Decoration/Jewellery/Holiday Gifts/Crafts/Lucky Dip/Groceries/Dried Goods/Toiletry/Christmas Board Game/Christmas Hampers/Santa's Grotto/Bottle Stall/Nail Painting/Home Baking/Table Top Games/BBQ Burgers/Tearoom.
From April 2017 we are asking the Congregation to donate and assist this Fund Raising Venture for example.: - Each Month starting from April we will have boxes available in the Vestibule for donations:-
APRIL 2017 - PLEASE DONATE TINNED GOODS
Each Month thereafter we will intimate what items to donate and the Fund Raising Group will store for use at the Fayre.
One of the Stalls will be 'Holiday Gifts' and the Guild will be responsible for collecting any gifts you care to donate from your Annual Holiday. Anne McIntyre Tel 239966 will gladly accept your gifts throughout the Summer period.
We have a very enthusiastic committee and I would ask the support of the Congregation in progressing this initiative. During the incoming months we will also request donations of small items (Worth £2) for the Lucky Dip: small Selection Boxes for Santa's Grotto from the £1 shop (Wrapped for Santa would be a help for this gift): Groceries/Bottles and Toiletries.
The Christmas Fayre is a major undertaking and with your continued help and support this can be a very beneficial day both financially and in expressing the work of our Church within the Community of Calderwood.
