The folks at Wilsden Trinity would like to thank all the people of Wilsden (and beyond) who supported our Summer Charity Coffee Evenings.
The Summer Coffee Evenings are a tradition brought to us by our friends from Harecroft Methodist Church who joined us a couple of years ago when their building sadly had to close due to structural problems. They held these events for many years, despite being a small church with very few and mostly elderly members. A shining example of what can be achieved with determination and commitment.
The Coffee Evenings are held on the second Monday evening of each month from May through to September and, besides being really pleasant social occasions, have raised an average of around £200 - £300 for each of the chosen charities, which this year have been:
The Lord Mayors Charity,
The Alzheimer’s Society and
The Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Unusually, the August one was for the Church Building Fund, as we are raising money to pay for the extensive work carried out to our premises).
They have been hard work but very enjoyable and worthwhile. We hope to repeat them next summer for different charities and are confident that we can rely on your continued support.
If you have not already been to one of our coffee evenings then make a note for next summer. You will be made very welcome. It doesn’t often snow in summer - even in Wilsden - and we are not as far away and isolated as you may think. Also, we are blessed with stunning scenery so you may enjoy a pleasant summer evening drive over here. Your reward will be home-made scones, a bottomless coffee pot, a warm welcome and a chance to catch up with friends and perhaps make new ones.
