We are pleased to say Thank You to all our fund raisers, including the anonymous donor sending money each month through payroll giving.

November 2010 Worcester Victorian Fayre

We had a stall in the St Andrews Church Hall in what is fast becoming a permanent location and sold a goodly amount of craft goods. Thank you to all who staffed the stall and all those who bought from it.

The "Everybody Knows Somebody" campaign poster was again on prominent display.

Despite the ongoing effects of the recession plus the unusually cold and snow and icy weather - winter had arrived particularly early, a total of £320.65 was raised from sales plus a further £35 from sale of Breast Unit Campaign items. Well done everyone who helped.
