Cards for Good Causes

Christmas is coming!

For many people, sending and receiving Christmas cards heralds the start of the festive season and helps to stave off winter blues with steady reminders that family and friends are thinking of each other during the cold, dark weeks ahead.

Sending a charity Christmas card not only helps brighten someone’s day but also helps support one of the many brilliant organisations working tirelessly to improvelives across the UK.

‘Cards for Good Causes’ help over 250 charities by selling their cards in 300 popup shops across the country. It offers an unrivalled selection of charity Christmascards, wrapping and stocking fillers and promise to return at least 70p in every £1to the individual charity you have chosen to support.

Buying from Cards for Good Causes is a great choice for both you and your chosen charity.

You can see a selection at

Central Methodist Church Launceston from 1st November to 8th December 10am – 4pm Monday to Friday 10am – to 1pm on Saturdays

Bodmin Moor Study

The Bodmin Moor study results are finally in and I’ve just been informed that another trip to the moor is in order!

Rememberance Commemorations 2018 – St Breward’s Poppy Wave

What London had, St Breward can Attempt ……………..

As part of the Remembrance Day commemorations in the Church I am building a Poppy Wave similar to those in London and Plymouth.

I would like to invite the community of St Breward to get involved by knitting, crocheting, sewing or making by any other craft, poppies to be part of this Wave. These can be in memory of family members or just as a token of respect for the fallen, or even just the challenge of producing something.  I have a crochet and knitting pattern for anyone who would like to participate, or you are welcome to work to your own design.

This project is going to take an awful lot of red wool! plus cut out card, crepe paper, or fabric poppies.  Grateful for any donations of these items that can then be used to make the poppies.

Please phone me or bring them along to the Memorial Hall when the Community Cafe is open on the first and third Monday of the month 2-4.30pm. Everyone is welcome to come along to the Cafe and work at making poppies

In order to give enough time to assemble the ‘Poppy Wave’, all the poppies need to be made by the end of October

Please contact me on 01208 851235 or calver407@btinternet.com if you would like further information. Fran Calver, Windfall, Rylands.

 

St Breward CP School Stand up 2 Cancer Fund Raiser

Friday 15th June from 1.30pm 


Coffee afternoon in aid of this essential charity.

The children have been asked to bake a cake at home (without too much help), to be judged by some members of the Carnival Committee, to be crowned St Breward School Baker.  There will be the usual refreshments, on offer, for those who wish to come and view the children’s marvelous confectionery achievements, and a raffle.  Raising money for this fantastic cause we invite all the community to come along and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of something.

Please, if you can donate a cake or some muffins, or a raffle prize it would be most appreciated. Drop into school Thursday PM or Friday AM, unless you are attending.

We look forward to seeing you at this event raising money for a fantastic cause.
