An Eventful Weekend
The last weekend of September was a busy one here on Sark with three events taking place. On Saturday morning Gemma Knight and her team of helpers and bakers held a coffee, cake and raffle morning and raised £160.50 for MacMillan Cancer Care. Later the same day Leanne Joyner, Sarah Andrews and a small army of supporters held the first jumble sale of the season. The stalls of clothes, books, bric-a-brac, raffles, cakes and tombola raised over £850 that will be shared between the Clic Sargent Cancer charity and the Alzheimer’s Society. The third event was a little less genteel when over a dozen teams entered the Lawnmower Challenge at Chris Rang’s campsite. It wasn’t quite as dangerous as it sounds as all the mowers had to have their blades removed. Sam and Rodney of the Island Building Company won so are now officially the fastest lawnmowers on Sark! words by Sue Daly(With thanks to Sarah Cullen of the Sark Scribe for the photographs).
