FOLLOWING THE CHANGING FACES COFFEE MORNING
About 4 weeks ago I
was visiting Peter at Sutton's Estate Agents after having
received a message via my daughter Lindsay that he would like to
see me regarding some information that he wanted to tell me!
On visiting the office Peter and Jackie asked if I would be
interested in having a Coffee Morning at his premises on 21st
December in aid of Changing Faces. Of course I jumped at the
opportunity! Peter said that we could use the office however we
wished and suggested we put up some posters around the village
to advertise the coming event! I got in touch with the charity
to ask if they could supply a few of their latest pictorial
posters which might perhaps encourage people to come in and
support the event and several posters had also been created by
Jackie, these would be used in the village. Peter used the
front window plus one of his advertising boards within the
office to make up a display with the relevant information about
the Coffee Morning, he had also told me that one of his friends
would be supplying some pastries for that morning.
I arrived at the office by around 9am on the morning of the
21st. Peter was then going off to Hunstanton to pick up the
pastries for the event and Jackie had already started getting
the tables and chairs ready for the people that we hope would
turn up! As most of you probably already know Peter has been
very supportive of local events in Heacham and his most recent
was that of the Centenary Celebrations of the Heacham Football
Club which had also been displayed in his front window for some
time which had made quite an impact on the people in the
Peter turned up with a whole tray of goodies that had been
donated and these were arranged ready and waiting for the people
to arrive. The morning gradually progressed and a steady stream
of people came in spending quite a bit of time enjoying the
pastries, teas and coffee's a DVD had been playing throughout
the morning showing the work of the charity and people seemed
very interested by what was seen, the people who attended were
all very generous in giving donations to the charity.
The whole event ended by around 12.30am and at that particular
time we had taken about £90 but as they days went by the amount
had grown to £102 and this has been sent to Changing Faces!
I would just like to take this opportunity to say a very BIG
THANK YOU to the people of Heacham as they are and always have
been absolutely marvellous in supporting Changing Faces in
whatever way they can, you're brilliant!
While I'm thanking people I would also just like to mention
those others who had been major contributors in this fantastic
Peter Sutton of Sutton's Estate Agents, without
the generous support of this man it wouldn't have been possible!
Thank you so much Peter!
To Jackie and Ronnie (from Sutton's) who worked
tirelessly to help with the arrangements, the coffee's and tea's
etc, Thank you both also for your wonderful kindness!
And finally to Paul Henry for supplying the
wonderful pastries that everyone enjoyed so much!
Thanks to everybody!
With my sincere wishes for Happy New Year
