The Children’s Society,With Children for Children!

In March (2019) Mary and I again made a donation to the The Children’s Society a charity that has become amongst our favourite charities.

We have been collecting loose change from the bottom of Mary’s hand bag, and from my trouser pockets now, for many years for this charity.

Every year Roger Poole the St Thomas’s Church Warden comes around to our home and we have a little chat and then offer the donation to him.

This year the amount came to £103.00. Not exactly a Kings ransom! But nevertheless a small donation that I know will be added to others, and will do some good for Children. So that means we have started again in our saving box for the next time!

Thank you Roger Pool and your wife for being so good and collecting for The Children’s Society.I know that people like you make a huge difference to our Wednesfield community. Volunteers are really the key to a great community.
