Team host - ‘Cherish a Child’ Fundraiser Crowds packed the Youth Hall for a very special event hosted by the W.O.W! Women of Worth team. The Hall had been given a special makeover for the Coffee Evening, Cake Sale and Promise Auction! Everyone enjoyed coffee, tea & some tasty treats while sharing fellowship in a lovely relaxed atmosphere. Many also appreciated the cake stall where they purchased some home-made goodies and the Face Painting and Nail Art proved to be very popular with the children. There was much enthusiasm from the crowd as Pastor Jonathan (Auctioneer!) invited bids for the ‘lots’ on offer! Over 30 people had made a promise to donate their time, a skill or an item including: a Harley Davison Experience, Driving Lessons, Spring Cleaning, Painting, Music Lessons, Gel Nails and many, many, more! Pastor Jonathan was ably assisted by the ‘in-house comedy drama team’ who helped set the scene during the Auction. It was truly a great night of fun and laughter for all the family. Through this event the tremendous sum of £2,600 was raised for ‘Cherish a Child’ our community project developed to help respond to the specific needs of local children. This innovative Ministry Outreach works alongside various Agencies to ensure that a real difference is made in the homes where it is most needed. Once a need is identified suitable items are sourced and already in the past 18 months over 80 children have been helped through this wonderful initiative. A BIG thank you to those who made this all possible. To the W.O.W! girls, the ‘set up’ team, those who looked after the sound & lighting, the bakers, those who prepared and served supper, the face painters & nail artists, the ‘clear up’ team and not forgetting our very own ‘Drama Team’! Also, many thanks to everyone who came and gave donations. “And He took the children in His arms, placed His hands on them and blessed them”.
