FOLK & FOOD
If you’re really feeling adventurous and are well connected, you could ask for a local café or restaurant to have a folk and food night. Ask a local folk musician to donate one evening and then get the restaurant to sell tickets in advance. Those ticket sales support Church Army. The restaurant benefits from a full house of people buying food and the musician might sell their CD’s if they have any or get further paid bookings as a direct result. Everyone’s a winner!
We all like a cup of tea and a slice of cake don’t we so you could challenge people in your church to a Bake-Off and then sell off slices of cake with a cup of tea and all proceeds to Church Army. You could do it after a church service or hold a special tea party, invite the neighbourhood and show a Church Army film or even give a short talk about those we help with the money.
