Christmas Market

We had a full house on Saturday 8th December. Everything went very well and the Christmas Shop brought it’s bit in. We received lots of donations for the tombola (which was a sell-out), but also in cash. The British Skat Association alone raised £140 in a games day. Nevertheless, there were more goods left than the year before, so the profits went down a bit. The remaining food was donated to The Connection at St Martin’s to help the homeless. In the end we were able to donate the profit of £3150 to The Friends of St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, for equipment. Many thanks to donors, customers, musicians and helpers!

 

Stamps for Bethel

For many years we have been collecting used (and unused) stamps for Bethel, a social charity in Bielefeld, Germany. The donated stamps are sorted and processed by disabled people to be sold on. This gives them jobs and a lot of fun in finding out where this particular specimen is from. Please keep all undamaged stamps and pass them on to Udo Bauer, who will send them on to this good cause.

 

Street Money

A few people from the German YMCA have continued to collect money from the street. Some also donated their spare pennies to the good cause. So we were able to donate £130 along with the remaining Stollen etc to The Connection at St Martin’s, the homeless charity in Trafalgar Square. Thanks to all involved!

DVDs for Seamen’s Mission

If you have spare DVDs that you don’t need we will happily collect and pass them on to lonely seafarers. On the ocean they usually don’t have TV reception.
