The Books, The Gifts, His Nurse and Her Pawnbroker

Q. What is it that links: Books, Nurses, Charity, and Pawnbrokers?

A. The last H&T fundraising event.

Three Saturdays ago (on 28th August) H&T held the charity book sale where they had hoped to collect 100 books and sell them to raise money for the Macmillan charity. At about 10:45 when I wandered past I was told they had been donated 1180 books and had already sold 100 of those! (I personally found and grabbed a copy of Lord Of The Rings as it is one classic I didn't have at home - pushing the total up to 101)

In 2015 H&T are looking to raise £52,740 to fund a Macmillan nurse for a year between there 190 or so stores. The H&T in Worcester Park is also hosting another event next Friday (25th September). It will be a Macmillan coffee morning, again to raise funds toward the Macmillan nurse goal.

So if you're around - why not pop in for a coffee, a chat and to help Macmillan fund a nurse which in the end will be a Godsend for an unknown number of people suffering cancer.
