A huge THANK YOU to everyone who helped us raise £462.74 at the Coffee Morning & Plant Sale held on Saturday 25th May in the Manse grounds. Our special thanks to the Ladies’ Group for the delicious teas; to Ann Birnie for taking care of the plant sales, with the help of the Men’s Group – the plants went like hot cakes (so to speak!); to everyone who turned up on Wednesday and early on Saturday morning to put up gazebos, tables, etc. and then dismantle it all; and finally, to everyone who turned up and spent their money on a lovely sunny day. Thank you all again.

This is the new TV advert for Christian Aid Week 2013, which takes place from 12-18 May. It tells the story of poverty – and how to overcome it. It doesn’t feature actors and this isn’t a film set. It’s a real community and a real story of hope, self-sufficiency and the power of possibility. This is what our donations to Christian Aid can achieve in poor communities around the world.
