Party-goers at Meltham Meal’s Christmas meal on Friday 7th had a double surprise, to welcome not only unexpected visitor Dan Schofield, of DS Recruiting Services Ltd, but his very generous donation of £250 to Friend to Friend in lieu of sending Christmas cards this year! He didn’t want a fuss at the time, but we hope he will forgive us giving him a mention here. Trustees, members and volunteers were all hugely grateful for this very selfless gesture!
Many thanks to Dan (pictured here with trustee John Lines) and his company.
Here is another photo from the meal, as our members were entertained by singing from Meltham C of E School’s choir.
We would be very grateful if you might donate one or two of the following for the “Christian African Relief Trust” who will speak at Friend to Friend’s Holmfirth Project Group on Friday 16th November 2018.
Just bring any items you are able to provide to our session from 11-2 at the Methodist Church Hall in Holmfirth.

We have this week banked a very generous donation of £1,000 from a non-uniform day held at Holmfirth High in aid of our charity. We are overwhelmed by this generosity and the Holmfirth members gave them a round of applause so loud they might have heard it back at school! Our trustees will be writing to the school with a formal ‘thank you’ but we wanted to shout our thanks publicly as well.
