ORGANISERS of the annual Strawberry Supper at St Luke’s Mothers’ Union, which raised £339, have thanked people for their support.

Carole Elliott and Dorothy Wood said: “This is an annual event at St Luke’s we have been holding for many years. It aims to raise money for the MU Summer of Hope overseas fund.

“This year we sold nearly 60 tickets, and wondered how many would turn up due to the very inclement non-summer weather.

“However, despite the wet weather nearly everyone attended. We invited all our Deanery members and our friends from High Legh and Henbury.

“As usual we provide scones with cream and strawberries and a variety of cakes made by our members.

“There is also the opportunity to buy from the Bring and Buy stall, the book stall and the raffle, which always has good prizes.

“Whilst enjoying the scones and cakes we present the Big Quiz, for which there is a prize for the winner.

“This varies each year, and this year it was divided into five sections of different subjects, the last section being MU.

“This is always a successful evening, and each year we try to make it a bit different.

“We always wonder how many more years we can do this before people lose interest, but every year when people go out of the door they say how much they enjoyed it.

“It is also a good opportunity to raise funds for MU overseas, and this year we managed to raise £339, so it was worth the effort.

“We would like to thank all those members who put in all that extra hard work to set up the room for the evening and who helped behind the scenes, running stalls, making teas, washing up and clearing up the room afterwards.”
