Mercy House will benefit from the evening canal cruise, held on Saturday September 26th, along Chichester's historic waterway
"Stefan & Frances Bartkowiak & Marie O’Grady would like to say a big “Thank you” to all who supported Mercy House on the “Sundowner Canal Cruise” last Saturday night. A full boat rang with the sound of laughter and lively conversation raising £385 pounds; a very good result for which Diana is delighted.
A beautiful autumn evening provided the perfect backdrop as we cruised gently up the canal. The food provided by Michael Oliver and Roger Johnson was a veritable king’s banquet all washed down with an inexhaustible supply of Pimms. Together the boat crew, hospitality and catering staff and all who attended helped to make this event a huge success raising vital funds for Mercy House. Thanks must also be extended to Geoff Breeze who chauffeured most of our party in the new parish minibus. Hope to see you all aboard next year."
This the latest Parish venture assisting our Johannesburg charity - Mercy House.
