Circuit Webteam: June 2017
On 14 June May Hill Methodist Church opened its doors to the local community for its usual monthly coffee morning. This event gives the members an opportunity to meet the residents whilst enjoying a drink and home-made cakes, provided by members of the church.
This month all monies raised were to support a young man called Daniel Edwards. Daniel received life changing injuries when he dived into the sea and hit his head on a rock. Now paralysed he is staying in a specialist spinal unit until his home has been adapted to cope with his disability.
A total of £128 was raised and a cheque was sent to Daniel's great-aunt, Kay Jenkins, a member of Hucclecote Methodist Church. Kay thanked the members of May Hill for their kindness and support for her great nephew. The members of May Hill would like to thank everyone for supporting them at this event.
