Fund Raising for Holy Cross Action Project : Saturday 4th October 2014.
Tim Williams has asked us to promote this event, writing….
“Can you believe it? Yet another summer has been and gone and most of us have had our holidays! But, the good news is – the “Big Breakfast” season is upon us once more! As the old adage goes – “if it ain’t bust don’t fix it”, therefore nothing has been mucked around with and the format remains the same………..great Full English Breakfast with a choice of fruit juices, followed by bacon, sausages, black pudding, baked beans, mushrooms, fried bread, scrambled or fried eggs, toast and marmalade, with as much tea or coffee as you want – all for an incredible £6 per head. We always have vegetarian sausages available for our non-meat eating supporters too.
“We love to see lots and lots of children at the Big Breakfasts – and usually welcome the budding David Beckhams after their footie practice! Their breakfast menu is – fruit juices, cereals, and a choice of two main cooked items, plus toast, marmalade and tea or coffee – all this for just £3 per head.
“Why do we do this – well, the answer is quite simply to raise funds for Holy Cross Action Project. Every penny profit made is given to this cause. In the five years we have been doing this, we have, thanks to your invaluable support, raised just over £20,000. This year’s focus is on getting the toilet facility which we so desperately need, built inside the Church. This will save the trip (often in the biting cold) to the not-very-salubrious confines of the present loo in the Bromley Room!
“As usual, the event is held in Byfield Village Hall. We open at 9 a.m. and take last orders at 12.30 p.m., closing the doors at 1.00 p.m. Everyone is welcome – so please do come and enjoy the food, the chat, the community spirit. Please also come and say “Hello” to the cooks and bottle-washers, who will be found slaving over the hot stoves and sinks in the kitchen toiling relentlessly to please you and cater for your every whim! I shall be in a quiet corner of a darkened room somewhere close by!”
