Pat’s coffee mornings
Pat lives in Rome and every autumn a coffee morning is organised for the Fund. To date this has been at the home of friends, one of whom has has been a great knitter of teddy bears which were sold to raise funds. At the coffee morning we also sell coffee and cakes (baked by generous ladies) as well as delicious home-made marmalade. We also take this opportunity to sell Christmas cards and notelets. On the terrace a second hand book stall is always popular where people can pick up a good bargain!
To date these coffee mornings have raised over 5,750 euros!
Jenny’s Christmas Card lunches
In November each year, Jenny holds these lunches at her home in Islington. Local friends (and some not so local!) are invited. Pat sells her Christmas cards and Tuscan lavender bags which disappear pretty quickly! On these occasions Jenny is ably assisted in the greeting, serving drinks and lunch by one or more of her Christmas ‘fairies’ Marcus Wohlrab (Katie’s brother), Rob Edge and Dan Cook. The ladies love it (and so do the men – perhaps it’s the pinnies!) A big thanks to all these friends – it’s a great way to kick off the ‘season’ and, this year, made over £1545 to boot!
