Square up to cancer

Come Along And Try Square Dancing

Help Macmillan Nurses Cancer Support Charity.

Square Dancing is a form of American Barn Dancing. Four Couples dance in a square formation. You dance the moves a caller calls and change partners throughout the dance but come back to the original by the end of the dance. It is gentle exercise for mind and body. You don’t have to dress up! You don’t need to come with a partner. The music is country, pop, novelty and even music hall.

It’s a lot of fun. Bring your friends and have a laugh while knowing you are helping a worthy cause.

Sunday afternoon 10th October 2015, 2.00pm – 5.00pm.

Tea, coffee and cake!  Anybody who comes gets a voucher that entitles you to two free 2 hour lesson sessions at Blisworth Square Dancing Club. How good is that!

Suggested Donations to this event is £5.00 or more. All proceeds go Macmillan Cancer Support.

When you have cancer, you don’t just worry about what will happen to your body, you worry about what will happen to your life.  At Macmillan, they know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything and we’re here to support you through. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk Macmillan’s will be there. They help you make the choices you need to take back control, so you can start to feel like yourself again.    No one should face cancer alone.

Support us in Memory of someone you know who has fought or is currently fighting the battle with cancer.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child

Run by Samaritans Purse, Operation Christmas Child more familiarly known as the Christmas shoe box has been run again in the Benefice during October with Dodford church acting as the local central collection point.  At the time of writing 28 boxes have been collected (that’s one more than last year) although a few more might float in before the final delivery date.  Unfortunately our target of 50 boxes was perhaps a little out of our reach but we can all try again next year.  At least we know that 28 children somewhere in the world will have a little something to bring a smile, knowing that someone, somewhere has sent them something.  So a BIG thank you to everyone for your generosity.

there’s still time to donate

During November, Dodford Church will act as the central point within the Benefice for anyone wishing to donate.  The Church will be open every Saturday throughout November from 9am To 4 pm and the 16th November following our service until midday.

If you’re looking for other donation opportunities you can hand in your shoe box at other places until 18th November 2014 – please visit the Samaritan’s Purse website to search for your local drop off point and find out information on how to pack your shoe box.
