Carols by Candlelight evening

On Friday 16th December, the Cornwall Blood Bikes were invited to St Michaels Church in Newquay to be presented with a cheque from the churches Thursday Club and the Headland Hotel at the Carols by Candlelight evening.

In attendance was myself, Geoff & Terry Crocker, Lee Allen & Lucy + mum, Len McMorrow and John Penlerick. Fleet bike 3 was gentle brought into the church with the kind permission of the Head Priest, Rev’d Canon Jem Thorold.

We were very graciously afforded reserved seats at the front and I think we all enjoyed the singalong with the very full church congregation. We were treated to the Brownies enacting the birth of the baby Jesus and the Angel Gabriel.

Near to the end, we were all invited to come to the centre of the church where Maggie (Thursday Club) told the congregation about us and our work. Maggie presented us with a cheque for £4249, £3749 of which was amassed over 2016 by the Thursday Club and £500 by the Headland Hotel. Both of which are staggering amounts and testimony to the work we do and the fact that more and more people know that we are out there doing our thing.

A huge ‘thank you’ has been forward to both donators and we hope to meet again.
