To raise money to send two scouts, Tom and Charlie , to the 23rd World scout Jamboree in Japan next year, St Pauls Church in Clitheroe held a fund raising evening on saturday night. As the footy was on later I thought it would be a good way of getting the girls ( and their little girls 🙂 ) together for a few drinks and some family fun.
The evening consisted of a delicious vegetarian two course meal that my friend Janet thought up and cooked, as well as children’s games, a tombola, live music, a quiz and an auction of some amazing looking prize hampers.
The food I must say was absolutely yummy. Compliments to the chefs! Although I’m not a vegetarian I love veggie food and the menu did not disappoint. 🙂
St Pauls was decorated with some home made red, white and blue bunting and I loved the pretty wild flowers in jars that adorned all the tables. And check out some of the hampers that were auctioned off on the night.
All in all we had a fab evening and I think the scouts must have raised nearly all their target, thanks to some very generous people and a very persuasive auctioneer. 🙂
