A big thank you to the many people and organisations who donate to Mary's House each year. We'd like to highlight one such donor. Annie is a year 6 student at St Philip Neri School. The Parents and Friends at St Philip Neri supported Mary's House through their Christmas party. After hearing about what Mary's House does, Annie decided that instead of presents for Christmas she wanted to receive money which she would then donate to us. As requested, all her family gave her money. You can see Annie here presenting the cheque to Maggy Farago, our executive officer and Richard Harpham, one of our board members.
Maxine Baudish is organising the third annual Mary's House movie night on Friday 15 June. This year all funds raised from the movie night will go towards purchasing "starter packs". When our residents move on to the next phase of their lives, Mary's House helps them to become established. A starter pack includes all the items needed for a kitchen, linen and other essentials.
"The Bookshop" is set in a small town in 1959 England. It is the story of a woman who decides, against polite but ruthless local opposition, to open a bookshop, a decision which becomes a political minefield. Please book your tickets at https://www.trybooking.com/359434
Previous years have been a sell out so get in quickly!
