M/s Martha Melbourne reports on a successful ‘Afternoon Tea Fundraiser’ in aid of St. Mary’s Church, in Littleton, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
St. Mary’s Church (C of I) parishioners would like to thank, most sincerely, everyone who supported their recent ‘Afternoon Tea Fundraiser,’ which proved to be a huge success.
Martha stated; “Sincere thanks to all those who baked cakes and buns, made sandwiches, those who came to enjoy a ‘cuppa’ and a ‘chat’, those who bought raffle tickets and cakes on the day. Truly your support and help is most greatly appreciated”.
Martha also expressed a special word of thanks to all those who worked so hard in the kitchen and serving at table, keeping the tea flowing and everyone fed.
“Thank you to those who donated raffle prizes, made cash donations and let us borrow your china. A sincere word of thanks to the Management of the MB Community Hall for all their help with this event and also for housing us for Church Services, while the Church was closed, following a fire. We are now back using the Upper Room of the Church for Sunday services, while works are still progressing downstairs, concluded Martha.
The St. Mary’s Church in Littleton village was extensively damaged by fire, leaving restoration works expected to cost in the region of €200,000. The proceeds of this recent afternoon tea event will now go, in its entirety, towards the ongoing works which parishioners hope to have fully completed by the autumn of 2016.
