    10 am onwardsSt Paul's Church, Bedford

    Following the wonderful success we  had last year with the number of raffle tickets Bosom Pals members sold, we have been asked if we would undertake to do the same again this year.  The money raised by the raffle is split between St Paul's Church and the Bedford Hospital Charity with the prizes being donated by local firms, groups and individuals.

    The church is decorated with a large number of small Christmas trees, each having been decorated by various schools and organisations.  During the day there are concerts from a wide variety of groups all providing  magnificent music.  The festival is well worth a visit even if you are unable to help on this occasion.

    We are looking for volunteers to man the raffle table for the sessions which are 10-12.30, 12.30-15.00 and 15.00-17.00.   If you are interested, please talk to Eve at one of our meetings.
