We are collecting Clothing, Household Linen, Towels, Curtains,  Blankets, Shoes in pairs, Belts and Handbags. Also but in separate bags please, Books, CDs, DVDs, Mobile Phones, Ink Jets and Stamps.

You can put them in your own bags, or collect GNAA bags from the Coop in Grasmere or from the back of the church.

Bring your bags along to St Oswald's Church on 19 March before 2.30 pm. Stay and have a chat and a coffee.

Table Top Sale in the Village Hall, Saturday 18 May.

We're hosting a table top sale to raise money for our funds. Tables will be £10. Grasmere will be busy on a Saturday in May, so this should be a good sales opportunity.

We will be serving tea, coffee and cakes all day.

Contact us via this website, or speak to any Committee member to book your table. Please spread the word. Jill Morrison is coordinating this event for us.
