On Saturday 18th May, Blandford Methodist Church opened its doors to host the 'BIG BREKKIE' to support Christian Aid. Those who joined us, tucked into cereal and fruit juice followed by either a bacon, sausage or egg bap. Tesco kindly donated the cereal and the fruit juice whilst the milk and baps came courtesy of Morrisons. The sausages and bacon were purchased from Matos, the local butcher. Volunteers from the Church welcomed the diners which included the local Member of Parliament, Simon Hoare, took orders for food, cooked and served food and drinks and chatted to visitors. One of the ladies manned the stall where people could purchase a breakfast quiz and children could collect colouring sheets to complete over breakfast. There was a petition encouraging the government to fill the loop hole in the tax system that benefitted rich companies to the detriment of developing countries as well as a leaflet to be completed and sent to Philp Hammond the Chancellor of the Exchequer asking that Great Britain drop the debt of Sierra Leone incurred during the Ebola epidemic a few years ago. If this was to happen, Sierra Leone could afford health care for all its citizens — in particular pregnant women. The event raised a total of £272.50. A big thank you to those who supported this venture in any way.
