We thought it would be appropriate to celebrate Suzy’s Ruby Anniversary. To this end, we are hosting a Simple Soup Supper for Suzy in St Peter & Paul’s Parish Centre on Friday 22nd May. We have invited the priests who have been at the parish over the last forty years and representatives of some of the charities that the Suzy Fund has supported, to tell us how Suzy has helped.
Tickets are priced at £2, just to cover the cost of the soup, but we will, of course, be taking a Suzy collection on the night If anyone would like to come, just drop me an email at: PHaley@talktalk.net.
