Mungo's joined the Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning fundraising weekend on Saturday 1st October in the church hall. Repeating the successful event of past years, the hall once again was filled with fresh baking
and lots of hot tea and coffee.
sun shone down on the visitors, including many St. Mungo's members who
took a break from their morning chores and shopping (Ed - isn't that

with friends new and old.
The social team ladies
had been busy baking and scones with strawberry and cream leading into
cream sponges, and chocolate cake. Cup cakes too filled the table.

the after Sunday service gathering for tea and coffee.
