Dear friends, It is my challenge for 2010 to combine my favourite activities of spending time with friends and cooking, with fundraising for the church fabric fund. I plan to start a dinner tree, a social activity for people to attend alone, in couples or with a guest, which will grow organically and allow us all to see more of each other in the coming year, while raising money in the process.
I will be hosting a number of dinner parties over the coming months, at which everyone will be invited to provide their own alcoholic beverages, a good time will be had by all, and then at the end of the evening, everyone will be invited to donate an amount of their choice into the fund.
The growth element of the activity is that everyone in the company will then be invited to host their own event, preferably with friends and family from outwith the congregation, in order to widen the income potential for the fabric fund.
If you hold an event, the money should be handed to myself within four weeks.
This activity is not restricted to dinner either, if you feel that you would rather host a lunch, wine tasting or morning coffee event, that is also encouraged, so that everyone can be included.
If you wish to be included in the initial round of events or require further information, please forward your names to Marianne Sankey either by phone (07801279899) or email (
