Members of Blandford Lunch Club held a Christmas sale to raise money for a local charity.
Gifts were donated, and ranged from diaries and calendars, boxes of chocolates and biscuits, to tables full of all things Christmas. Some members had been knitting and sewing for months, producing beautiful hand crafted gifts.

The stall was set up for lunch club members on four occasions so they could purchase gifts before sharing lunch together.

The chosen charity was Blandford Opportunity Group, who have just celebrated their 25th anniversary. The group works with children with special needs, aged from birth to five years. Specially trained staff help children on a one to one basis, plus also supporting families and carers.

On 29th January, Niki Roper (administrator of the group) was presented with a cheque for £250 by lunch club member, Greta Open, on behalf of all the members.

Many thanks to all who raised so much for such a good cause.

Di Browning, Lay Worker
