Despite torrential rain MBC’s gazebo plant sale raises over £1,250

12 May 2021

With Jenny Dixon, Nicky Gibb and Karen Ross in charge this year’s rain battered Plant Sale raised an astonishing £1,269.20.

But even with Jenny, Nicky and Karen at the helm, like every successful event an awful lot depended on team work. That’s why there’s a special mention for John Duffy, Paul Chadwick, Howard Slater, Rod Russell, David Vale, Howard Dews and Roger Robson for help with the second gazebo. Further help came from Kate, Jean Carlisle, Karen Handley, Jan and Geoff and Helen Colling plus there has to be a special mention for Steve Olinjick following his heroic efforts helping to transform the new garden. 

The money we raised goes to two churches in Romania. One is in Oedeheu, and which is pastored by our friends Zsuzsi and Andor. Together they plan Christian summer camps for young people, so besides helping them fund a large weekly youth club our donation will go towards that. The other church is in Cluj where our support is used to support university students and a gypsy pastor.

However, the final word of thanks needs to go to you. To everyone of you who braved the torrential rain and either donated or bought plants.
