Over 200 people gathered in the Ballymoney Church of God Youth Hall for a very special event hosted by the W.O.W! Women of Worth team.
The Hall had been given a special makeover for the Coffee Evening, Cake Sale and Promise Auction.
There was much enthusiasm from the crowd as Pastor Jonathan Payne (Auctioneer!) invited bids for the ‘lots’ on offer. Over 30 people had made a promise to donate their time, a skill or an item including a Harley Davison Experience, Driving Lessons, Spring Cleaning, Painting, Music Lessons, Gel Nails and many more.
Pastor Jonathan was ably assisted by the ‘in-house comedy drama team’ who helped set the scene during the Auction. It was truly a great night of fun and laughter for all the family.
Through this event the tremendous sum of £2,500 was raised for ‘Cherish a Child’ the Church’s community project developed to help respond to the specific needs of local children. This innovative Ministry Outreach works alongside various agencies to ensure that a real difference is made in the homes where it is most needed.
Already in the past 18 months over 80 children have been helped through this wonderful initiative.
