Christ Church Guild and A.C.W

The Thrift Shop lo­cated in the Christ Church Hall in Stanstead, is just one Project among many that the ladies of the Christ Church Guild and A.C.W. un­der­take to raise funds to be able to do­nate to sev­eral char­i­ties, lo­cal and abroad, and to sup­port the Church. Thanks to many do­na­tions of cloth­ing, The Thrift Shop also sup­plies a need to the com­mu­nity. Other events, held through­out the year to help raise funds, are the sea­sonal sales, Spring Fling, Sum­mer Siz­zler and Fall Fair. The gen­eros­ity of those peo­ple at­tend­ing th­ese events has helped in the con­tin­ued suc­cess of the hard work­ing mem­bers of the Christ Church Guild and A.C.W. Now that the Christ­mas hol­i­day sea­son is fast ap­proach­ing, why not start a new tra­di­tion and get into a fes­tive mood by vis­it­ing the Christ Church Hall on Nov. 16th for the New Christ­mas Sale and Cof­fee Time event.

The ladies will be pulling out all the stops by sell­ing de­lec­ta­ble sweets like fudge and jam, and don’t for­get the dough­nuts, bread, pies, cook­ies, Christ­mas pud­dings and more, all home­made and ready to be savoured. Know some­one who likes to cook? There will be lovely aprons to choose from, knit­ted items to keep lit­tle ones cozy and warm and lots of fancy hand­crafted items too. You can find Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tions spe­cially made with you in mind, and you never know what kind of trea­sures you will find on the Christ­mas gift ta­ble and the jew­elry ta­ble. Af­ter the hus­tle and bus­tle of shop­ping at the sales ta­bles, en­joy a cup of cof­fee or tea along with a fes­tive choice of sweets, cheese, fruit and home­made bread which will be served in a warmly dec­o­rated at­mos­phere. So mark it on your cal­en­dar and have an en­joy­able Cof­fee Time while con­tribut­ing to a very worth­while event.
