Fun with Fundraising
Beacon Hill had a great week of fundraising in November!
Firstly, we harnessed ‘cake power’ on 6th November by selling cakes after the morning and evening services. In November 2016, we celebrated World Toilet Day by raising enough money to buy a twinned toilet to help prevent the spread of disease in a less developed country … and we wanted to do the same again this year. The rock cakes, plum cakes, rocky road and banana and walnut loaf went down very well; and the proceeds came to a wonderful £70 – more than enough to twin our second toilet.
Then, on Saturday 12th, we held our 4th annual charity ‘soup and quiz’ evening. We dined on soup and crusty bread, then taxed our brains with quiz questions ranging from Olympic champions to music and film, from children’s TV programmes to Cumbria. After 12 keenly fought rounds, the victors – Karen, Hayley, Simon and Paul – scored an impressive 90 (and a half!) points to win some chocolate prizes. Donations from the evening – £143 – will go to the Nicholas Lowe Children’s Home through the Cumbria / Argentina partnership.
We had a lot of fun with both events and are very grateful to everyone for their generosity.
