Saturday 10th December is St Luke’s Mini-Market (9a.m. to 2p.m.) and we need your help.
Each year we sell whatever you can bring – jams, pickles, cakes, biscuits, slices, plants and of course we have a good supply of bric-a-brac in our Opshop. We also have a giant food hamper competition for which we sell tickets, and parishioners are encouraged to donate Christmas fare to put in the basket – there are lots of delicacies in the shops which would be gratefully appreciated by the winner!
If we get a lot of food donations, we might have first and second prize.
A very nice boxed cake has already been donated!
Thanks everyone in anticipation of your goodies!
