At our recent Village Fun Day, somebody found a ten pound note on the grass. They took it to Bob at the Sound Tent, who announced this over the PA [Will the owners please queue up over here…]
But nobody claimed it!
So two weeks later, Bob held it up in church and asked for suggestions as to what to do with it. A number of people suggested Gwen should buy things for the Mizpah Orphanage, as she is visiting them in India this autumn - but young Sophie said if she had it, she’d buy materials to make things to sell at her Macmillan Coffee Event. So she was given the tenner. I went along this morning, and discovered that with the help of her Mum, Jo, she’d produced
…truffles, in cute little boxes
...candy cane mice [neatly packed in CD wallets]
..and among the vast display of stunning cakes
…some chocolate crispy cakes
There were lots of people there when I dropped in this morning, so I hope they made lots of money. Bob is away, but I bought him a crispy cake to enjoy tomorrow evening when he returns. [and in case you are wondering, he said that if anyone was upset that Gwen did not get the £10, then they should go and give her a donation themselves!]
