Ladies Group Update

Our March event ‘Everything goes well with Chocolate’ proved to be a very popular evening, with many of our ladies bringing along their friends and neighbours. 

Carl Whitehead, the Captain of the Salvation Army in Ramsgate, started the evening by sharing his testimony with us, explaining how he became a Christian and the way in which he felt led into the Lord’s service within the Salvation Army.

Prior to going into the ministry, Carl used to work at Cadbury’s and gave us a very informative talk, with slides, about how chocolate was first discovered and the processes that occur to give us the wonderful tasting chocolate we have today.  He provided milk and plain chocolate samples for us to try and identify the brand and then rate in order of preference and taste.  There was also a quiz on when different brands of chocolate bars were first introduced, which was quite enlightening!  

As usual, food and drinks were provided and there was a great atmosphere throughout the evening. 

In May, we invited the ‘The Gap in the Market’ shop to put on a Fashion Show.  Once again, this proved to be a very popular evening in which we watched some fantastic volunteers (male and female) model a range of clothing for all occasions.  

During the evening, the ladies were able to sit and chat or view and purchase clothing, shoes and accessories, that had been been modelled, and items donated to the shop.

It was good to be able to support the ‘Gap in the Market’ shop which raises money for many community based projects.  It has some fantastic items for sale and is well worth a visit.
