Last night CLC Tracey went to help out at Yardley Baptist Church Kids R Us Club. It's for children years one to six and runs each Wednesday 4pm until 6pm. We made people biscuits, which thankfully I managed not to burn in the oven. The children were able to take them home – that's if they hadn't eaten them before leaving the church!
The Royal British Legion opened it's new pop in shop in Birmingham City Centre on Tuesday. Sandra Grice from Asda Shirley and I were lucky enough to get an invite. The Legion provides lifelong support for members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, Reservists, Veterans and their families all year round.
Alan and Sarah from St Mary's Hospital were extremely happy with the £200 cheque from our Chosen by You, Given by Us token vote.
I went to Regents Park Community School today to present a Chosen by You cheque. Here I am with Rofia and some parents who's children use the breakfast club. Asma from Morrisons Small Heath came along as they are also supporting the club.
Here are some of the parents and children of Harvey Road Pre School accepting their Chosen by You, Given by Us cheque. Viv Jones, the nursery manager, put in the request as the pre school needed some new play equipment. The children were very excited and were making a list of things they could get with the donation.
Little steps nursery were in store with one of the Bananas in Pajamas. The children loved shaking his hand and parents learnt about the free places at the nursery for 3-4 year olds.
Halesowen & Hagley Farmers Club, Annual Countryside Show, Dawn from Asda Bromsgrove and myself were there to lend a hand during the day. Fantastic weather and cheep entry ensured we ran out of entry bracelets (1200 by 1.30pm) and had to use the good old marker pen. Can't wait for next year.
Yardley Fun Day. Sponsored by ASDA SMALL HEATH. We had great response from different organisations that were willing to come along. Leafy Shades animal rescue had to bring along some very tiny squirrels, as feeding time didn't stop during the day. 87th Bierton scouts came along and we had some delicious burgers and cakes. It was a little dull at times, but this didn't stop peoples enthusiasm during the day
