After a sunshine-filled August, we are now open again and have had a wonderful first week. Thank you for giving us such a lovely welcome back.
We are really excited to be hosting our annual Macmillan Charity Event on Friday 26th September. This year we will be raising funds for the chemotherapy suite in the Macmillan Cancer Centre at Lister Hospital. This event promises to be bigger and better than ever. Come along to the “French themed” event to find the garden open (weather permitting) and lots of lovely treats on offer – French themed dress optional (ooh la la!). There will be a chance to bid, in our silent auction, for a number of fantastic events including a golf day and tickets for a classical concert. The garden will host a range of stalls including bric-a-brac, pre-loved ladies clothes, books and produce. Our raffle is even more exciting than last year, with beauty treatments, magazine subscriptions, afternoon tea vouchers and many more wonderful prizes. We will also have a hand-made dress to be auctioned, an Avon cosmetics table and, of course, mountains of delicious cakes and scones!
We are welcoming donations of good quality bric-a-brac, un-opened cosmetics, good-quality ladies clothing and paperback books.
We hope you can join us on the 26th for what promises to be another great event. Come along and help us in our attempt to beat last year’s amazing total and join in the fun in support of the wonderful work of Macmillan in our community.
