Autumn is approaching and the nights are drawing in – we hope you enjoyed the last of the Summer sunshine!
We reaped an amazing harvest by linking in with the new director of the Abergavenny Food Festival and her team. After negotiations with the events manager, a chain of food festival stewards handed an astonishing amount of fresh produce and leftover food into the 7Corners Cafe. Ange made contact with Abergavenny Community Centre and Gateway Church in order that they would also benefit from our unusual harvest.
Our yearly Summer Barbeque was a great success. It was held to say thank you to volunteers who give up their time throughout the year to help us and to celebrate the work we do. The weather was fine too and a good number of young people attended so the Barbeque brought everyone together to enjoy some food and music.
A 24/7 Prayer Room will be running from 7pm Wednesday October 25th till 7pm Wednesday 1st November. Please contact Ange on 01873 855 414 or pop in to the 7Corners office to book your prayer slots.
Our Hotspot team is still out every week around Abergavenny, visiting Bailey Park, Abergavenny Castle and the ‘skate park’ on Hereford Road to meet the young people out in the community.
Next time you buy something online don’t forget to visit the Easyfundraising website first before you make your purchase. At no extra cost to you, 7Corners will receive a donation from EasyFundraising. We recently received a cheque for over £25 from this source – every little helps, as a certain supermarket used to say.
Any volunteer help is most welcome! We’d love to hear from you if you feel you can help out in any way; pop in and see Ange in the office or telephone 01873 855414.
