Joshua Trustee Sarah Charlton and I were delighted to be a part of the Charity Christmas Sale and Coffee Morning at St Mary Magdalen church in Tilehurst a few weeks ago. As well as Joshua, there were stalls from; Tearfund, Fairtrade, RNIB, RSPB, Cats Protection League, Mothers Union and the Children’s Society. Over £500 was exchanged between shoppers and stalls, and a great morning was had by all.
Sarah and I were particularly addicted to the array of homemade biscuits and cakes which were on offer and it was a delight to meet so many of the people who have been supporting Joshua over the last year. This small but friendly church have now raised over £1,000 for Joshua, which will help some of the most impoverished children in Malawi have better lives.
Why not put the date in your diary now for next year’s event - October 17 2015! Of course, this may change nearer the time by a week or two.
