Easter coffee morning raises funds for United Reformed Church in Bourne
An Easter coffee morning has helped to boost church funds in Bourne.
A monthly event at the United Reformed Church Hall, the volunteers added an Easter egg tombola to their popular stalls on Saturday (April 13).
As a result, they raised £242 during the morning, which will help with the upkeep of the church building.
Sid Reedshaw, who volunteers each month with his wife, Judy, said: “We had a great turn out and raised even more than last year, which is needed for the church because it is quite an old building.
“Anita Chipperfield is the main organiser, and we have a team of regular volunteers and saw new people helping out this time too.”
The stalls that the coffee morning features include bric-a-brac with ever-popular jigsaw puzzles, as well as home-made cakes, jams and preserves.
“People enjoy the stalls and having a coffee, but more than that, it’s a social event for people to get together and have a good chat,” added Sid.
“We have our regulars who enjoy coming each month, and we always welcome new people to come along. It’s open to everyone.”
The coffee mornings in the church hall are 10am until 11.30am on the second Saturday morning of each month.
Bourne United Reformed Church Hall is also home to the town’s Churches Together Food Bank, while the church holds Sunday worship at 10.45am.
The church will lead the Good Friday Walk of Witness from Eastgate at 10am to St Gilbert’s RC Church and Bourne Baptist Church in West Street.
