Summer Fayre with scarecrows, Poets & Preachers, Lizzie loses her locks for children with cancer and others, Bleach Mill House charity day

Don’t forget the Summer Fayre and scarecrow hunt at Menston Primary School today (Saturday). It’s a damp, misty morning but the BBC forecast is for a bit of sun by this afternoon. Let’s hope so but it’s worth a visit whether sunny or not.

Poets and preachers at the Parish Church

Sunday evening, there’s an interesting ‘Songs of Praise’ service at St John’s Parish Church. It has the theme ‘Poets and Preachers‘ and all will be welcome to join in the singing and learn something about the authors. The service begins at 6.00pm.

Seven year old Menston youngster Eliza (she prefers Lizzie!) Street had her beautiful long locks cut off on Thursday, not only to donate them for making wigs for children with cancer (Little Princess Trust) but also to raise money for the Menston charity her mum Beth founded to help rebuild schools destroyed by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Beth had her hair cut too for the same causes.

They are leaving together on Monday 6 July for the Philippines where they will not only donate the money raised by Angels for Children (eg from the Soul Night at Kirklands and the Summer Ball at the Craiglands Hotel earlier this year) but also a lot of medical equipment. Lizzie is taking treats to give to children.

It’s not too late to make a donation. Go to the Menston charity’s website.

Don’t forget another charity event next Saturday, 11 July. All proceeds from the annual charity event at Bleach Mill House will this year go to Menston youngster Charlotte Wormald, who has severe cerebral palsy. Go and have some tea or coffee and cakes beween 10am and 4pm and help hosts Sue and Simon Richmond to raise a record amount this year.

Bleach Mill House raises money throughout the year to support the Teenage Cancer Trust and will also be aiming for a record for this year for this too. Pop down for a full English breakfast with double-yolker eggs from the magnificent speckled hens on another day (or tea and cakes), to help make 2015 a record year for this ongoing fundraiser too.
