The first Aggie's Christmas event has been a big success at Cosy Coffeehouse in Churchill Square, the naval married quarters in Scotland. We heard from Revd Paula Pye, Chaplain at Helensburgh, and Jan Mckerrow our Pastoral Worker, about how the event went.
“Christmas @ Cosy was held on 3 November at Cosy Coffeehouse at Churchill Square. This was a hugely successful event that raised money for Aggie Weston’s.
The event was predominately organised and run by the Cosy Sewing group, who had spent many weeks making a wide range of beautiful gifts, including Christmas stockings, Christmas tree decorations, children’s aprons, and make-up bags, hand bags, Santa Sacks and much, much more! Becky provided a table full of crocheted goods and some amazing handmade Christmas cards and Helen provided some beautiful handmade jewellery.
For much of the morning the coffee shop was packed, often with standing room only! People were treated to a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie and other festive goodies.
Huge thanks go to everyone who stitched, especially Vicky, Allie, Nic and Emily; and also to everyone who crocheted, made jewellery and generally helped out before and on the day, we raised over £400!”
Jan Mckerrow said: “A massive thanks to Revd Paula Pye. Her expertise and skills made this event possible. The Craft sale was a tremendous success due to the hard work & talents of our craft groups who produced a variety of useful gifts. We were thrilled by the amount of folks who supported this event & the amount of money raised for Aggie's.”
