Thank you to Geraldine our parish volunteer at St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Cowes for organising a plant and cake sale in aid of CAFOD on 12th May. Many thanks to Peter, Sue, Lin and Donna who contributed plants and made cakes for the sale and raised the amazing amount of £346. Thank you so much !
Geraldine told me “We had cucumbers, tomatoes Cosmos, geraniums, dahlias, basket plants such as petunias. perennials such as Nepeta, heuchera and some shrubs. It provided a great opportunity for chat and people seemed to enjoy the plants and the very nice coffee which helps a lot. Lots of people came in after Mass on Sunday and bought plants or cake. We all felt it went well; we enjoyed ourselves getting to know each other better and seeing everyone’s different talents and hearing about their gardens.”
What a great way to fund raise and we have lots more ideas here.
