28th March URC Jumble Sale cancelled

URC Spring Jumble Sale OFF!

The sale scheduled for Saturday 28th March has been cancelled, for reasons that will be obvious.  Please do not bring donations for sale to the church on 27th March as previously requested but if possible keep them until we are able to resume our programme.  However, we have a limited amount of storage space, so if you have quality items that you are not able to keep please ring Richard Piper on 01895 634348 for possible collection.  Any shortfall in revenue that we have will not only be detrimental to the work of the church but also our external charities for the year: End Youth Homelessness, Dementia UK, Parkinson’s UK and Toybox.  Thank you for your continuing support!
