Baked bean challenge raises over £500!

Well done to Jade, Malaika, Natalie and Crissie! Today, they braved the cool September weather and sat in a bath of baked beans to raise money for HCPT Group 101. Together they raised over £500 in sponsorship! Well done girls!


Good luck!

Last Saturday's meeting and raffle draw

On Saturday Group 101 held a group meeting to prepare for the 2013 pilgrimage. It was a great meeting and social evening, thanks to everyone who could make it. We also drew the winners of the 101 raffle and this made a staggering £1031! Many thanks to everyone who bought and sold tickets and to everyone who donated prizes, particularly Hare and Tortoise, Cheswold's and Elachi restaurants. The winning ticket numbers can be found below.

Another raffle and a cake stall will be held at the bacon buttie morning on Sunday 16th September at St Paul's church hall. If anyone can help us by baking and by donating prizes for this, please let us know. We also need prizes for future tombola stalls.

Further details were also provided for tickets for the Fashion Show on Wednesday October 17th. These will be £3 each.

All helpers who received forms for travelling to Lourdes, please get these back to Phil and Margaret, along with your deposit, as soon as possible.
