PLEASE HELP LOCAL CHARITY|
Do you have any unwanted prizes/presents and would like to help a local charity?
Nuzzlets is a small charity based at Great Ouseburn. We rescue animals and then use them for therapy for disabled and terminally ill children.
We visit Martin House Children's Hospice at Boston Spa on a weekly basis and host regular visits from local schools such as Forest School, Knaresborough and West Oaks, York.
In November/December we are fundraising for Nuzzlets at Poppleton Garden Centre, York. We are holding a tombola, to raise funds.
If you have any unwanted prizes or gifts, we would very much appreciate them. It doesn't matter how big or small - as long as they are new.
I am very happy to collect any donations, or they can be left with me at Sunnyside Farm, Arkendale (tel: 340240). Your help would be very much appreciated.
If you would like to know more about the work that Nuzzlets do, please visit the website: www.nuzzlets.org.uk
CHURCH HELP WANTED|
Could you help your local church occasionally? A rota sytem has been running for many years to organise flowers in church and also church cleaning. We are in need of more volunteers to help on the cleaning rota in particular; perhaps two friends may like to pair up to cover a duty fortnight. Flower arrangers are also welcome, especially at Christmas, Harvest and Easter.
If you could offer any help, please get in touch with Margaret Horner at Bryan Lodge, Arkendale, 340493
