Although the charity gratefully acknowledges the support from the council through an Our Manchester VCS grant , this does mean that we have to continue fundraising throughout the year to make up any shortfall so that all our services and activities can continue.
CGN runs regular raffles at Sunday teas and some Thursday coffee mornings, and occasional small sales of fancy goods.
Last Thursday, 25th October Arthur held a big raffle with about 30 prizes, which raised £135.
Joan always helps sell raffle tickets and Susan made sure everyone had a chocolate.
We continue to be very grateful for all kinds of donated gifts which can be dropped off at the office, as well as donations and legacies.
