30th Sunday OT (Old Rite: OLJC the King)

Bazaar - Friday 27th & Saturday 28th November: less than 5 weeks to go …
Draw Tickets: have now arrived – don’t forget to take a couple of books – don’t forget to return the counterfoils and money as soon as possible! 
Please bring in good quality items now: bottles for the stall (& prizes), good-as-new toys & fancy goods, religious articles, DVD’s, homemade jams, chutneys & handmade crafts. When out shopping why not think of us when you see the ‘Buy-one-get-one-free’ offers – it won’t cost you anything but can help us to raise those extra funds needed. We ask that you DO NOT bring in any electrical items, jumble, videos or books. It is a time consuming task for the ladies who spend their time having to sort through everything just to have to bin the rubbish which no-one wants!
Lucky Dip Prizes: If you have some nice little good-as-new toys or knick-knacks that children would love, please bring them in!
Don’t forget to check out Easyfundraising. It is really easy to sign up - takes a couple of minutes at most – and anyone can do it – individuals or businesses – there are several retailers available covering everything from Amazon to airlines & package holidays; insurance comparison & mobile recycling to panto and theatre tickets! Mobile Apps are available too for those who shop via phones & tablets and for a very simple and completely free way of donating to our cause – instead of using the usual Google, Yahoo, Bing etc – if you use ‘Easysearch’ (, they donate 1p for every 2 searches made towards our cause. Remember ....little drops of water make a mighty ocean.
