Easy Fundraising for the Church Hall

Thank you to those of you who are already supporting our cause by registering at this link and using it every time you buy goods online:

http://easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/stbudeauxhall and using this link when you search the internet: http://stbudeauxhall.easysearch.org.uk/

It really works!! In the 6 years since we registered with Easyfundraising, the 26 of us who have registered have already raised £614.65. Think how much this could be if all church family (who have the internet) registered and so did their friends and family!! If you install ‘Donation Reminder’ on your toolbar the cause gets 50p and you will never forget to click onto it when you search the internet with the intent to buy something. If you install ‘Easysearch’ on your search bar, you will already be logged in and just click onto it whenever you are searching the web. Every time you do, we get 0.5p. It does all mount up - £20 a year at 10 searches a day! It is easier to set up than it sounds! Please give it a try, especially as you start thinking about buying online for Christmas! Many thanks, Liz Webb (Secretary and Fundraiser, Hall Development Committee).


Shared Lunch

On Sunday 10th February there will be a shared lunch in the Church Hall for all the Church family after the 10:30 Service. It will be lovely to have everyone together and a chance to catch up with those you haven't seen for a while. Please bring a plate of food for the buffet table or a yummy pudding.
