Poynton Save the Children would like to thank Chairman Veronica (Ron) Ryder for her more than 50 years as a fundraiser. Ron has helped raise several hundred thousand pounds in that time. She is stepping down as Chairman after an amazing 47 years in the post but will remain an active member of the fundraising team.

Poynton Save the Children raised £ 280 at our Cake, Jewellery & Plant Sale outside the Baptist Church in June. Many thanks for the donations of money & cakes, and thank you to all the people who came & supported us. Also thank you to the baptist Church for use of their tables & the girls in the cafe, who very kindly helped us unload our cars.

Just over £400 has been raised this year from the sale of plants. The will be selling Christmas Cards at the Marie Curie Fair in the Civic Hall on Saturday 11th October and at the Charity Fair at Poynton Methodist Church on Saturday November 6th. They will also have a Children’s’ Lucky Dip, A Bag Tombola and Costume Jewellery for sale at those 2 events. Cards will be available at Bramhall Methodist Fair on 6th November.

We would love to raise more money & would welcome any new members & new ideas for fundraising. If you are interested in helping, please email Sue Kilgallon at sue@websure.net .
