evening we had Geraldine Walters come along to give a talk about
the services she provides for T girls such as electrolysis for
hair removal and also tattoo removal. She was accompanied by Ruth,
shown here with her, who has had many sessions of electrolysis
and highly recommends her service. Ruth has also created her website
at this link.
Ruth has also created a website that can be used for anyone to
volunteer as guineapig model for people training to provide different
beauty services such as Geraldine provides. see her link for more
Ruth and David Sarah
Sarah, shown here with Ruth, was here for the first time this evening
and made a good effort going round and talking to most people in
the club. This is an excellent way to start and I hope she enjoyed
her evening and keeps coming back for more.
I was pleased to see Miranda with us again after a bit of a gap.
She spent part of the day as well going round town with Vanessa
and Jenny so I hope they all enjoyed their outing. They apparently
ventured into the Science museum where they found there were more
children than they might have anticipated, some of whom were rather
curious about our girls.
Vanessa and Frances
Jennifer and Vicky
New MC nails
Arrowsmith, from Changing Faces, also came in this evening to
tryout the new nails she had agreed to make for me to see how
they looked. She has made and painted these herself and as you
may be able to see we have MC in gold on one finger on each hand.
The idea with these nails is that they can be used many times
with being damaged as they are made for a gel that is not affected
by the acetone that is used to dissolve the glue at the end of
an evening. I can verify that they all came off quite easily undamaged,
just by dipping each finger into a small pot of actetone for about
half a minute each. These could prove very successful as I think
she only plans to charge £25 a set which can be used many
times over and if you happen to lose a nail she can easily replace
it with a similar one.
next week we are having a Balck and White theme evening and the
following week we are having a Ladies at the races party as our
final gathering at NewYork NewYork before we move to Villaggios
on March the 7th.
Wednesday 8th February 2012
On Tuesday the 7th of Feb a group of 9 of us who are involved with
running various aspects of Sparkle, got together with Beccie, who
is one of the main organisers and also a trustee. She happens to
live in London so it is quite difficult for us to meet up but she
has recently got a job which entails her visiting Manchester on
occasions which made this meeting possible.
It was a very useful and encouraging meeting so I would like to
thank Beccie and all those who attended for making the effort.
Following the meeting I went and had a meal with Jane Maybe, Karen
and Leanne and then later on met up with Beccie and Pauline Smith
from Trantastic. We went round various bars in the village and I
didn't get home till after midnight but their company was very enjoyable
so thanks to you both.
Cate and Joan
was lovely to see Cate with us again, all thanks to the efforts
of Joan and I have at last managed to get a photo of them together.
Cate is celebrating her first anniversay and Joan has arranged a
meal out next Sunday for a group of us to join her to celebrate.
Incidentally , in case you dont know, Joan is now the main moderator
of the Concord forum, so if you have any questions about it, she
is the person to ask.
Zoe, shown on the right in her fantastic black and white leggings,
tells me that she has now been selected by the television company
that was looking for a T girl to act as a model for a trainee dressmaker.
So later on this year we will see her having her outfit made.
This does mean that any of the other people whose names I put forward
were visited last week by Jennifer from Changing faces and one of
her skills is creating hand painted fingernails of which she had
many samples to show to us. We had asked her about the possibility
of getting decorated false nails that we would be able to use more
than once as most of us can only wear them for such a short time.
She came back this week to measure my nail widths as she proposes
to return next week with a set for me to try, that she has created
specially to demonstrate that this is possible. I look forward to
seeing the result. She is making them from a different material
that should not damage as they are removed.
Next week we will have Geraldine Walters with us to describe the
services she provides among which are hair removal and Tattoo removal,
so do come along to meet her and see how this is done.
I have an announcement to make about our meeting venue.
We moved from the Rembrandt to
NewYork NewYork in August 2010 and are very grateful to Tracey
and Peter for the way they received us, made us welcome and went
out of their way to construct a changing room for us to use on
wednesday evenings. We would also like to thank all the staff
at NewYork NewYork for the friendly service they have given us
over the last eighteen months.
the meeting room itself has always been a bit too large and too
dark for our purposes and many of the members have been asking
us to try to find somewhere smaller and better lit so that they
could meet in a more comfortable area. To this end several people
have been looking round in the village and have finally come up
with the meeting room above Villaggio's Restaurant that is suitable
and also has a room above that they are willing to allow us to
use as a changing room. We have now agreed terms with the Management
and have arranged to start meeting there from the 7th of March
a way of saying thank you to Tracey for the service she has provided
over the last eighteen months we propose to hold a farewell party
on wednesday the 29th of February at NewYorkNewYork to try to
raise as much money as possible for the Christie Hospital Cancer
Charity that she supports.
I would like to urge as many of you as possible to come along
that evening to support this charity.
Gill Springay will also be with us that evening so you can get
some make up advice and make a donation at the same time.
Wednesday 1st February 2012
Jennifer and Tamsin
evening we were delighted to welcome Jennifer and Tamsin from "Changing
Faces" who joined us for the first time offering makeup assistance
to anyone who was interested. They seemed to spend most of the evening
working with lots of different people so I think this was very popular.
Jennifer is also a Nail artist and they are coming again on March
the 21st when she will demonstrate this art using a set of nails
that can be used more than once. Make up advice will also be available
that evening so do come along then if you would like to meet them.
Makeup in progress
Sam,Vanessa and Jenny
I got to Eden this evening I found Vanessa, Jenny and Frances already
there and found that they had spent most of the day together visiting
various venues in Manchester. This included the Manchester Museum
where, it appears, they not only show Dinosaur bones etc from long
dead animals, but they also have a small zoo where they have live
animals on show such as small lizards.
They were offered the chance to handle these creatures but decided
that they would rather not when they realized that even the handler
was having trouble keeping them under control and they didn't fancy
the sharp teeth. Even so they appear to have had a very enjoyable
Karen, Frances and Kristina
on the left, has recently met a new partner and is slowly introducing
her to Debbie. They have been to the club together once before and
were here again tonight and Debbie is greatly comforted by the acceptance
she has been shown. I hope things work out for you Debbie.
Stacey, on the right with Paula, was here for the first time and
settled in very quickly talking with several different people during
the evening. She is now our member number 437.
Paula shown with her, had a small makeup problem and was very pleased
with the help she was given by Tamsin with her eyelashes and mascara.

Milli and Mandy
the 18th of January I got an email from Milli, shown here on the
left, saying that we may not see her for a while as she cycles to
work and has grown a beard to keep her face warm in this cold weather.
Imagine my surprise when she turns up this evening all dressed up
but with no beard. She said that she couldn't stand it, even for
two weeks, so shaved it off again and here she is showing off her
Below are pictures of our two ladies who look after the door for
us most often these days for which we are most grateful. Tina always
manages to look smart in whatever outfit she is wearing and Millie
is showing off the very fancy tights that she recently got at a
very bargain price.
have not seen Chloe since before Christmas but here she is again
looking her usual smart self. I couldn't resist showing both photos
as the coat looks really smart but the dress shouldn't be hidden
It was also great to see Cate with us but sadly she tells me that
she is getting towards needing a wheeel chair in her flat and this
is going to mean that she will have to move, as the doors are not
wide enough where she is at present. She will be sad to move as
she is happy where she is with her mother living very close, so
she is able to spend time with Cate every day at present. Thanks
Joan for bringing her down to see us, you are an Angel.
Lisa and Beckie
Liz, Mia and Isabelle
were joined this evening by Mia, here for the first time, having
just moved over to Manchester from Leeds. Within a week of moving
here she has got herself a job and a flat and has managed to find
herself some bargain furniture to go in it. She doesn't hang about.
She is a very extrovert girl and will be an asset to the community
here as she is proud to be a transgender girl. She is also shown
above with Liz and Isabelle, who is gaining in confidence every
week with her skirts getting shorter and shorter as time goes by.
We are now having meetings to help organise Sparkle and I was very
pleased to see Beckie here with us this evening as she is one of
the main organisers of the event, but, as she lives in London, we
dont get a chance to get together very often. She now tells me that
she has got a new job which will entail her visiting Manchester
every few weeks so this should make things a lot easier for us all.
Liz and Didi
Amy and Julia
on the right, was happy to show off this dress as she told me
it was the first time she has worn anything off the shoulder.
It looks good and is fun to wear so I am sure it wont be the last.
week we have Jennifer Arrowsmith from "Changing Faces"
coming with a friend and they will both be willing to demonstrate
makeup on willing volunteers, so do come along and enjoy a new
Wednesday 18th January 2012
Nicole and Steff
in case there is any doubt, this evening was our PURPLE
dress theme night. What is obvious from these pictures is that there
are many shades of purple, but it matters not, it still makes a
good picture, I am just sorry that it seems to be a little out of
Dee, shown in the group below, had brought down a group from her
shop, with some of them, like Steff on the left, in purple dresses.
So thank you Dee we appreciate your contribution. For Steff this
was her first time out and she did herself proud. She joined the
club this evening and has promised to be back very soon. We look
forward to that. Nicole shown with her didn't have a purple outfit
to wear but we can forgive her as the last time she appeared here
at our christmas buffet she was in a Mother Christmas outfit.
Mary and Cindi
Steff, Susie, Dee, ?. Nicole
was great to see Brenda and Diane, shown here on the right, who
came along this evening along with Carole and her partner this evening
to pay their membership dues.
It is good when people make the effort to pay on time as this makes
things so much easier to administer, thank you.
Brenda and Diane
everyone can fit in with a colour theme, but this is no reason
to exclude them from these pictures so here are some of the others
who came this evening.
Lisa, shown here on the left, has been corresponding with Kay
Denise on the right for around 6 years but this evening was the
first time they have met in person, so this was special evening
for them. It was also the first time Lisa has been to the club
so welcome Lisa, I hope we see you again soon.
next week is a normal club week but on the following wednesday,
the 1st of Feb we will have Jennifer Arrowsmith from "Changing
Faces" here to give a makeover demo and to show what services
she provides. See our Coming events for more details.
Wednesday 11th January 2012
on the left, is now often the first person to arrive at the club
to get changed so she takes that opportunity to get a photo taken
before the start of the evening at 7 pm. I took a few but I think
this is the best one.
Very soon after 7 pm we had a couple come in who were just visiting
Manchester for a couple of days and they found out about Concord
by chance so they decided to call in. Pam shown on the left is one
half of the couple. Her friend did not wish to appear in the picture
so I took her along with Cora who had come along to the club for
the first time this evening.
Pam was visiting from Glasgow but Cora is a local girl and we hope
to see a lot more of her in the future.
I think they all enjoyed their first visit.
Cora and Pam
Paula and Lisa
shown here on the left with Lisa, is becoming a much more regular
visitor to the club and it is always nice to see her. Lisa is one
of our most regular members but over the christmas break she has
been away quite a bit as she has a daughter who lives down south
and sometimes baby sitting duties are called for.
Dannyella has just returned from two weeks in Grand Canaria looking
very brown. She tells me that she had a wonderful time there as
she met a boyfriend for the first time and she really enjoyed the
Sophie has been a member for some time but has not managed to get
here very often yet, so she was still a bit unsure about where else
to go in the village. I am pleased to say that she was taken out
during the evening so hopefully she will quickly get more confidence.
Jennifer is also a rare visitor but this was because she became
unwell soon after joining. She is now recovering but still has to
be careful because of her health. I hope she will now be able to
get out more often.
evening started off fairly quietly but filled up during the evening
with quite a number of new people coming for the first time plus
many members who only come very rarely. It is always a delight
to see Aman come in as she invariably brings a generous bag of
biscuits and sweets with her to give out to everyone. She doesn't
wish for her Photo to appear so I cant identify her, but I would
like to say thank you to her for these gifts.
dont forget that January is when we all renew our memberships
so do come along prepared to part with your £8 for the year
if you haven't already and dont forget that next wednesday the
18th we are having a PURPLE dress
Wednesday 4th January 2012
A Happy new year to all our Readers
It was great to see Millie back
with us after her cruise to the Canary islands, armed with loads
of photos of her plus various members of the crew including, I
think, the captain. She does seem to have a ball on these cruises
and I guess her mother probably gets more attention because of
her which is great.
was also good to see Pauline, her trusty helper, again as she
can only get here when Millie brings her. Thank you to both of
you for your loyal help on the door.
shown above, was one of the very early members of Northern Concord.
She has not been out for many years but has now decided to venture
out again and has joined us at Manchester Concord this evening.
She mentioned that she used to know someone who I am pretty sure
is Jayne who is also one of our members now, so if Jayne reads
this you may like to come along sometime and meet an old friend.
Kristina, shown in the middle had been out shopping this afternoon
wearing the outfit shown on the left and had bought the outfit
shown on the right so she wanted to show it off. I think it was
good buy Kristina, well done.
Emily, shown on the right is an occasional visitor as she comes
quite a distance, but she tells me that she has already got some
work booked in Manchester for the week of Sparkle, so she will
get her hotel paid for, as well as being able to enjoy the event.
Sounds like good organisation to me.
Cindi and Mary
Vanessa and Tina
Michaela and Cate
Georgina and Pauline
member from the north of Scotland, was down here visiting, so
was able to come in this evening. It is always great to see her
as she is such a positive person. She works as a builder and she
told me this evening that one of her customers asked her late
one afternoon, if she was a transvestite or a transsexual, completely
out of the blue as she was dressed as a man at the time. She decided
that she might as well be honest so she came in the next day and
showed her pictures and website to the lady customer. She was
completely relaxed about it and now they are very good friends,
but as a result of this Gina decided that she may as well tell
most of her other customers as well.
A week before Christmas she delivered Christmas cards to all her
customers as Gina and this resulted in over 5000 pounds worth
of business being given to her by Christmas eve. Her business
is thriving and she thinks it may be because she has been honest
with everyone, but the builders merchant, who she hasn't told,
is now wondering how she does it, as many of the other local builders
are not doing well at present. So it just shows we shouldn't be
hiding ourselves away as many of us tend to.
Lisa, Paula, Helena and Mandy
here are four of our most regular girls all dressed up and somewhere
to go. We have been having some quiet evenings recently. It is
time more of you got off your backsides and got out a bit more.
wednesday the 18th we are having a PURPLE
theme night so why not make an effort to get here and let us have
a sea of purple to get a good photo as well as an enjoyable evening.
Wednesday 28th December 2011
was very cold this evening so I was impressed to see Milli arriving
in this short dress with these tights. But she was pleased with
having got a bargain and wanted to show them off as they included
the sewn in black seam up the back as you can see.
She is now getting very confident and comes here on the train dressed
in this way and so far assures me she has had no problems. Good
for you Milli, I hope life is just as good for you in 2012.
was lovely to see Debbie and her partner Judy come along early in
the evening. I have included two pictures of Debbie as I took the
first one when she was sitting at the bar, but then later when she
was just about to leave I saw her standing up and couldn't resist
taking another as she looked so good.
As you can see I didn't take a picture of her partner as she would
be too recognisable, so if any other partners or friends wish to
come along they can be assured that they will not appear in any
photos unless they specifically ask to.
Michelle and Rachel
was with us again from her home in Kent and she had met up with
Michelle, shown here with her, to bring her out in Manchester. They
stayed for a good part of the evening before going off to spread
their wings in the rest of the village.
Isabelle, on the right, is living with her parents at present, but
is planning to move into her own flat very shortly so that she can
relax and be herself. She tells me that she often gets taken as
a girl even when she is dressed as a man so she cant wait till she
can be a girl all of the time.
shown here on the left, actually joined the club in 2008, but
has not been for some time as her life was too complicated. Things
are now settling down and she hopes she will be able to come out
as Michelle much more often in the future. She has now rejoind
the club so hopefully 2012 will be a good year for her.
this is the last blog entry for 2011, so can I again wish all
our readers a happy and prosperous new year in 2012. I hope to
see you all at the club sometime in the coming year, Mary
Wednesday 21st December 2011
Cathryn and friend
Cathryn, shown on the left here with a friend, suffered a brain
hemorrhage just over 3 years ago. She has been back to the club
a small number of times since then but she now tells me that she
is fully recovered and ready to really enjoy life again. It was
great to see you back here again looking so well, Cathryn, I hope
we get to see you many times in the new year.
It was also lovely to see Paula here with her fish eating friend
before they ventured out again for another of their meals together.
I think they pass inspection before they go out and show themselves
to the world as our representatives.
Paula and friend
shown here on the left, is gaining in confidence all the time and
is now happier to be photographed. The mirror at the back caused
the extra light but we decided that it didn't detract from the photo
so we kept it. Christine had been out most of the day and had also
brought a new friend for the first time from the Stoke area, but
she was not yet ready to be photographed so I hope we see her again
Nicole, on the right breezed in later in the evening looking very
confident in her christmas outfit so here she is ready for a night
out on the town.
was a quiet evening, as is to be expected just before Christmas,
but as always there was still enough people to make it worthwhile,
including one new entrant who had come along in male mode to see
what the club is like. I spent some time talking with him and
hope that I was able to encourage him to come again soon. We will
have to wait and see.
can I take this opportunity to wish you all the very best in the
new year and let us hope that the recession, that is currently
with us, is somehow overcome and we all get our confidence and
prosperity back very soon.
Wednesday 14th December 2011
Ana and Mary
met Ana here at the club last year and got to know her for the
short while that she was here in Manchester working towards her
Phd about Transexualism. After she left to return to her home
in southern Brazil we continued to correspond and she often invited
me to go and stay with her to see her country. I eventually accepted
her very kind invitation and decided to visit in November this
year and to stay for 5 weeks as she put no time limit on my holiday.
lives in a small town some distance from Porto Allegre in a sub
tropical climate so it was their late spring early summer which
was an ideal time to be there. Ana and her husband Paulo and daughter
Laura could not have made me more welcome. I lived as part of
their family for most of that time meeting many of their very
large family group on various occasions as well as friends and
Ana's work colleagues. It was a very enjoyable experience and
a wonderful way to get to know the genuine kindness of all the
Brazilian people I met. So I would like to say thank you Ana and
I hope to see you here again soon.
would also like to thank Helena for carrying on producing Mary's
Blog so well and the many other members of the committe and the
club for keeping the regular meetings going at NewYork NewYork.
I guess I have to come back down to earth and carry on where I
left off, so here is a very quick blog entry about the Christmas
party we had at the club. We had a fantastic attendance of around
130 people and Tracey did us proud again with a wonderful Buffet
helped by Leanne who used to be our Barmaid some months ago and
came back this evening to do the buffet. Thank you to you both.
There were so many people here that I can only include a small
sample of those who attended, but for me it was a wonderful welcome
Joanne, Ruth and Cate
Mandy, Kate and Steffie
Amber, Heloise and Jayne
Tina, Pauline, millie, ?, Pauline
Kim, Milli and Joan
Jane et al(Sorry my brain has gone)
is it for the present, I really enjoyed meeting so many people again.
I was especially touched by Fernanda, who came in Drab just to say
hello, before she went off back home to Mexico, having just written
to her mother to tell her about Fernanda and received a very encouraging
reply from her. Best wishes to you Fernanda( she has now changed
her name to Esther) I hope you have a very enjoyable Christmas with
is away in Brazil , so this week's blog is by Helena at --> Link

Wednesday 26th October 2011
Suzie and Rachel
usual we started the evening with a meal in Eden bar and it was
good to see Suzie come in to join us with a friend called Rachel
with her for the first time.
We have not seen Suzie for some time now but she has been very busy
getting her life together and has now changed her name by deed poll
so she is Suzie full time.
This evening we had Krystyna with us again selling off her remaining
wigs at £20 and £30 each. At the end of the evening I asked her
if she would like to come back again and she said she would but
the wigs she had with her were all she has left, so when she comes
again in the new year you will need to make sure you get here, if
you would like one of these wigs at those prices. There will be
no more once they have all gone.
Krystyna and Mary
on the left, only joined us a couple of weeks ago have returned
from Tenerife after living there for 12 years. She tells me that
since she got back she has already found herself a job so things
are looking up for her. Congratulations Caroline it is great to
see you getting on with life.
It was lovely to see Elaine in the club after several weeks absence.
She knows so many people that I get asked every week what has happened
to her. But nothing has happened, she just needed a breathing space
and has been going out with friends most wednesday evenings and
enjoying herself so much that there was not enough time to come
into the club.
sold quite a few wigs this evening and here is Dannyella showing
off the blonde wig she bought which she was very happy with.
We had another new girl join us this evening called Rachel and
she is shown here on the right with Marolyn. Rachel had written
to me earlier in the week saying she was coming and asking if
I would recommend a hotel to stay in. I suggested she try the
Rembrandt and that is where she got in but she was slightly disconcerted
when they told her the bar was for men only. Even so she did come
out dressed for the first time and had a very enjoyable evening
at the club and later on in Paddy's Goose. She also bought the
wig she is wearing here from Krystyna.
welcome, Rachel number 2 this evening, I hope we see you again
Rachel and Marolyn
Michelle and Genevieve
Cate and Marolyn
is always lovely to see Cate and Marolyn come in as they look
spectacular. A few of the members wanted to know where Marolyn
gets her wigs from as Krystyna had nothing quite this big.
far as I know she was keeping it secret.
Michaela spotted this outfit in a car boot sale not long ago and
was very pleased when she found they only wanted 50p for it. I
think it has gone to a very good home.
case you dont know yet, Manchester Council has now in their wisdom
changed the free parking time in the centre from 6pm to 8pm. On
top of this they have also changed the minimum time you can pay
for from 15 to 30 minutes, so the cheapest anount you can pay
is now £1.35 . This is very aggravating for those of us who like
to get here early.
I decided to do, is to quickly drop my bag off at the club, without
paying any fee and then to put the car in the Charles Street car
park. When I parked it I thought it said that the fee would be
£3.00 for three hours which is a lot less than the £2.70 per hour
on the meters. So I planned to go and fetch the car just before
8 pm and move it to a free meter space, but I forgot all about
it and had to go and retrieve the car at around 11.30 pm. I was
then very pleasantly surprised to find that I was only charged
£2.00 for the whole time I was there, so I can only suggest that
many more of you use this car park. It is a bit further to walk
but at least you are not being ripped off and the Council loses
out by being so mean.
next week we have Gill Springay with us again to help people with
their make up. So it is a good opportunity for any new members
to get some help.
I should also now mention that I will be going on holiday for
5 weeks next friday so during my absence Helena has offered to
do this Blog. I hope you will all help her with posing for Photos
etc and making sure she knows your names. I am sure she will manage
it well and enjoy the experience. Mary
will be organising the Christmas meal at Villagios on the 3rd
of December and Millie has asked me to remind people that all
members will be asked to pay the normal entry fee for our Christmas
party Buffet evening on the 14th of December and all visitors
will be asked to contribute £3.00 for the evening.
Wednesday 19th October 2011
Saskia with her stall
week we had a PINK theme night but we also has Sakia come along
with her stall selling jewellery and wigs.
Saskia also brought along Sophia, shown on the right along with
her partner. They were running a raffle in aid of Breast cancer
research and during the evening they raised over £100 which they
were delighted with. So thank you to all those who bought tickets
or donated, it was a worthwhile effort.
Sophia had found Saskia on the internet and had been round and
had her make up done before coming with her to see the club and
organise the raffle. I am sure this will not be her only visit.
We had quite a variety of Pink outfits this evening and as I failed
to get a group picture of them all here are most of them individually.
Dannyelle and Mary
Isabelle and Michaela
Lisa and Paula
Helena and Danni
I couldn't decide whether there was any pink in Millie's dress so
I included her here anyway. She has just returned from a 17 day
cruise in the mediteranean with her mother having had a whale of
a time. She spent the whole time as Millie and said that the most
worrying moment was when she was stopped by two female security
guards as she was about to leave the ship for an excursion. But
it turned out that they were only interested in where she had got
her very fancy nails done so it was not a problem.
Marjorie and Tara
and Tara are very occasional visitors to the club as they come from
the midlands so I was glad to see them here and hope they enjoyed
Cate, on the right, was again brought by Joan as she is now no longer
able to drive the full distance from her home to Manchester. The
MS that she has, is getting her down as it is so debilitating but
I hope she can keep coming for a long time to come with Joan's help.
A big hug from all of us at the club Cate, we look forward to seeing
you with us when you can make it.
Tina and Christine
Milli and Dannyella
Genevieve and Pauline
Georgina and Andrea
the last group of pictures are a few of the people who came this
evening without any PINK in their outfits. Please dont let the
fact that you are unable to follow a suggested theme stop you
from coming to the club. These theme colours are only a suggestion
to encourage members to perhaps wear something that they would
not normally choose. But do keep coming anyway even if you dont
fit the theme.
week the 26th of Oct we will have Krystyna with us again selling
her wigs at ridiculously low prices so do come along and find
Wednesday 12th October 2011
Helena and Danni
evening we held a clothes sale and I would like to thank everyone
who donated items, especially including Gina who has now returned
to America. She donated all her remaining clothes to the club before
she went. So thank you Gina, your gift was greatly appreciated.
We should also thank Helena who came in specially early this evening
and set up the clothes for display. This help was much appreciated.
Overall the sale raised £130 for the club funds with the help of
a final amount of £50 from Dee who took away all the remaining items.
Clothes for sale
