Today I was chauffeured by my son Andrew to a village called Purton, in Wiltshire, UK. On arrival we were greeted by Louise Tidman and Jude and then we met some of the wonderful team of crafters who support KAS. Louise had organised a great fund raising event: a coffee morning, with a variety of stalls including cakes, books, bric-a-brac and super raffles. There was also a great display of items ready for shipping to SA and new cards from the Kas shop were on sale. About 80 people were at the coffee morning, sat around little tables busy chatting. It was very clear that it was a team effort with many willing hands playing their part, 'a well oiled machine' comes to mind!
Sharon Fennell was also visiting and was busy in the kitchen helping to prepare lunch! It was lovely to meet and chat to Sharon, another KAS sister who is passionate about KAS SA :)))
About 60 people enjoyed lunch (I didn't count, as I knew my number crunching son would), with a home made pudding, then more tea and coffee.....and a bit more chatting! I bribed Andrew to chauffeur me today, with the promise of cakes from the cake stall, and lunch; but I'm guessing he will volunteer if there is another KAS fundraiser in Purton! Yes, the cakes and lunch were delicious, but what stood out for us, was the wonderful community spirit that we saw and felt.
I have no idea how much money was raised, I'm guessing Louise has done well to boost the fund for the postage costs for her prolific crafters; but even without knowing that, the day was an amazing success, a community working together to support KAS.
I am still smiling...........
Thank you all!
Just before we left, Andrew 'snaps' 4 KAS sisters: Louise, Chris, Jude and Sharon.

I wish that I had known about this event. I would have sent along my daughter and granddaughters as they live in Swindon. They could have stood in for me :)
What a fabulous amount raised, all kudos to everyone involved.
Same here Joan, missed it . I'll be in London next week .

CONGRATULATIONS!! Just wonderful to see you all. A great read, Christine. Fabulous teamwork, Louise and Jude. Sharon, I thought you were a little shy hiding behind Jude.
