Last Friday 7 July, the Friends of St Mark’s held their annual Soup and Sweets Luncheon at St Mark’s Hall, Grafton Street, Warwick.
The rainy morning did not deter the crowd of well over 100 from enjoying the lovely hot soup and delicious sweets on offer and the warm atmosphere at the gathering. Many groups booked early this year to avoid missing out.
It was great to welcome groups from Blue Care, Cooinda Disability Respite House, Senior Citizens, Ladies from St Mary’s Catholic Church and from Killarney and many other groups and individuals travelling from around the local area.
The Grumpies band entertained in their usual upbeat fashion. Each year The Grumpies have made a donation to a worthy cause in our local community and this year kindly giving their donation back to Friends of St Mark’s. This was very gratefully received and with the money raised at the luncheon will be used in the restoration of the beautiful 150-year-old St Mark’s Anglican Church.
The raffle was drawn at the luncheon. First prize was an exquisite patchwork quilt, made and donated by Friends of St Mark’s member, Noelene Black. The winner was Pat Almond, of Warwick, and second prize, a beaded handbag was won by Kev Oldham, of Clifton. Third prize of a $50 Carey’s meat voucher was won by Dorothy Gartery, of Warwick.
Friends of St Mark’s would like to thank all who took tickets, and those who attended the luncheon. Many took home prizes from the multidraw raffle. All prizes were donated by members and friends and the lucky door prize was donated by Joe Coorey from Coorey’s Ladies and Menwear.
Everyone who attended went home feeling happy and well fed and the sun had even come out to brighten the day.
