Stanford-Le-Hope & District

General meeting Christmas 2018 social

Our December meeting was based on a Social theme with displays from some of our Interest Groups so that we could all see how much they enjoy their activities.

The Ukulele, Singing For Fun and Play Reading Groups provided the entertainment. In the quieter moments members could socialise with people who they would not always have the opportunity to talk to.

In addition the Charity Craft group had Christmas items they had made to raise funds for the Essex Air Ambulance and a raffle. They had been making items to sell throughout the year. They raised £681 for Essex Air Ambulance at our November and December meetings,
The Wednesday and Friday boules group donate £76 by signing a group Christmas card.

So our grand total is £757 for the Essex Air Ambulance.

Jean and the team would like to say a big thank our craft ladies and our U3A friends who supported us. It just show what you can achieve when we work together to keep the Essex Air Ambulance in the air and hope we never need them.

The St Luke's Charity Christmas Card that some of us have signed in lieu of sending cards to all our many friends in groups raised £130 for this good cause. Thank you to Bernie and Carol Smith for sorting this out.

FREE Teas and coffee on arrival and mince pies were also available and many members wore Christmas sweaters, tee-shirts Hats, etc. to add to the festive theme

Finally congratulations to our Christmas draw winners who each won £50 to get their Christmas celebrations off to a good start.
