Winter Warmer Evening - Report and pictures

We couldn't have predicted how appropriate the name we'd chosen for our fundraising evening was going to be! It was one of the most bitterly cold nights of the winter so far, on the eve of the arctic spell that blanketed the country in snow for the following week.

However, 35 supporters braved the elements to attend the meal in the church hall opposite the sanctuary, which was transformed from daytime nursery to night time eaterie by atmospheric lamps & candlelight.

The hall soon warmed up & was full of the aroma of delicious hot food & buzz of animated conversation as people caught up with old friends & chatted to new ones.

The main courses were a spicy chick pea dish & chilli accompanied by baked potatoes, followed by a choice of 3 vegan dessert cakes, cream & custard. Needless to say most people wanted to try a portion of all 3 cakes, so not a crumb was left by the end!

More money was raised by the raffle, we had some great prizes donated, like 2 tickets for Birmingham Rep & 30 voucher from Ethical Wares footwear company. Interestingly though, the most coveted prize seemed to be a platter of home made chocolate Tiffin, which disappeared within minutes at the winners table!

Overall, a very pleasing total of 514 was raised that evening , everyone had a nice relaxed & sociable time, & the animals benefited from some more funds to help them through the winter. Thanks to everyone who came with such good spirit & generous hearts.
