October Update

Dear Friends of Burnham Hospital,

Just a little catch up with you all. As you know we held a table top sale in September which raised over £500.00, thanks to everyone who supported us.

We extend our thanks to “Crafty Comforts” on the High Street in Burnham who continue to support the hospital by selling ‘Bill’s Boxes’ which are a lovely selection of bird boxes, bug houses and squirrel feeders. They sell them without charging any commission so pop in and see the fabulous selection of gifts available.

As of today we are pleased to announce we have another supporter in Burnham. “Baby Bee Crafty” a shop in College Street who sell a large selection of children’s clothes and baby items such as pushchairs, prams and toys, have agreed to start selling our beautiful hand crafted cards not charging us any commission, Lynn who runs the business said she was so pleased to be able to help the hospital. Please pop in and have a look, our cards are on sale for just £1.00 each.

As always we will also take commissions for bespoke cards for any special occasion, any size card up to 8x8, so please get in touch with me if you would like a special card made.

Our thanks to The Ritz Social Club, who have nominated the ‘Friends’ as their charity for 2020.

The quiz they held on 28th September raised over £100.00 and ongoing fundraising over £200.00 by supporting them you are also supporting us.

And now my ‘begging bowl’!!

If there are any retired crafters out there who have surplus unwanted stock then please let me know and I will collect it.

We are also in need of the following –

  • Jigsaws

  • Good condition paperback books

  • Unwanted gifts such as toiletries, bottles, jewellery and handbags

  • Dolls

  • Material for my sewing lady and wool for my knitting lady who both make items for us to sell

We no longer want CD’s, DVD’s or hard back books.

Membership –

As you know for a minimum donation of £5.00 per year you can support the hospital by becoming a ‘Friend’ to find out how, go to our website www.friendsofburnhamhospital.org.uk or you can contact me and I will let you have a form to complete.

If you are already a ‘Friend’ and don’t pay by standing order it is highly likely that your renewal is due so please contact us. We need you!

Given the current climate please don’t go to the hospital to collect a form just contact us.

Kind Regards Ceri Joyce Vice Chairman Email: ceri160443@sky.com
