Festive fundraising events for Group 101

In the lead up to Christmas there are some exciting events to raise funds for HCPT Group 101.

On Sunday 21st November, at the St Paul's church Christmas Fair, Group 101 will have a stall selling home made produce.

On Friday 3rd December, Group 101 leaders Phil and Margaret will be hosting their annual mulled wine and mince pie evening.

On Friday 10th December, the X-mas Factor talent show will be held at McAuley School in Doncaster. This is being organised by Group 101 helper Josh Baldwin.

On Tuesday 14th December, St Michael's school in Rossington are hosting a Christmas concert to raise funds for Group 101.

Hopefully these events will bring a successful close to a great year's fundraising. Then in the New Year we begin preparations for the 2011 pilgrimage in earnest!
