A series of monthly coffee mornings in Burnham-On-Sea has raised over £860 for the town’s hospital since the start of the year.

The regular coffee mornings for the Friends of Burnham Hospital are being held on the third Saturday of every month at Burnham’s Methodist Church in College Street throughout 2019, as pictured here.

The Friends of Burnham Hospital has this week thanked the Methodist Church for their support.

Ceri Joyce, Vice Chairman, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: “We would like to extend our sincere thanks to the Methodist Church in College Street for letting us host the charity coffee mornings on the third Saturday of each month for 2019.”

“March gave us our third coffee morning and I am very pleased to announce that for the first quarter we have raised a total of £868.09 which is an amazing sum for 6 hours of sales!”

“The turnout for each of the mornings has been amazing, it’s so nice to see people chatting and enjoying themselves. We have had some lovely feedback about our stalls which is great.”

“For those who have not yet visited us we sell super hand crafted cards, Bill’s lovely handmade bird boxes, wooden key rings, wooden gift tags and a great selection of Bric-a-Brac. We hold a raffle which is extremely popular with great prizes, our teas/coffees and locally handmade cakes are a must.”

“Our next coffee morning will be on Saturday April 20th from 10am till 12 noon so please come and help us to celebrate Easter Saturday with a promise of more chocolate prizes in the raffle!”

“We are always looking for suitable prizes for our tombola’s and raffles, bottles are always welcome in addition chocolates, sweets, books and quality Bric-a-Brac. If you have anything to donate you can bring it to the coffee morning or I can collect at a time to suit you. Either give me a ring on 01278-323794 or send me an email ceri160443@sky.com.”
