Bedale Car Boot Sale and Coffee Morning

Sunday, September 30th 2012

It was an early start for volunteers as they set up for the Car Boot Sale at Bedale.  There were many different things for sale and the team behind the stalls were kept extremely busy.

For volunteers helping at the Coffee morning, it was a slightly later start.

As usual the tombola was well supported.

Back at Foxglove children attending Eco Club were supposed to be looking for signs of autumn but were waylaid looking at the damage the water had done earlier in the week and viewing insects.  They saw many darters sunbathing and were very lucky to see two Emperor Dragonflies hunting over the pond at the second pond dipping platform.  A tiny Cream Spotted Ladybird was seen and some small spiders were having breakfast!

They looked at an orb web spider and viewed it in close-up on the camera screen.

This week the blog has shown volunteers carrying out a whole variety of different tasks:  from mending paths to baking cakes, digging ditches, filling feeders, and today supporting Foxglove by helping out at the Car Boot Sale and Coffee Morning.  A huge thanks goes to everyone who has helped out this week. 

As an afternote the total raised at Bedale was £593 51:  it included £440.77 raised at the sale, £62.00 from the Tombola and £100.74 from the Coffee Morning.  Pse see comment below.

It takes a serious resource to achieve what was done today and to run so many things concurrently.  Cakes had to be baked, there was the loading and unloading, getting up early and being on-site at 7am, manning both the boot sale and the coffee morning, the tombola, tables and chairs to be put out and re-stacked at Chantry Hall, clearing up afterwards, and the sale residue to be returned to Catterick at the end.  Meanwhile Eco Club took place and the Field Centre and reserve were manned all day.

Many people took part, and as usual gave up a significant slice of their weekend to do so. Foxglove, as a result, is almost £600 better off.  Without the time and support given by such a loyal group of volunteers things like this could never be achieved.  I would like to thank you all for your commitment which is greatly appreciated.
