At Home Coffee & Charity Book Sale

On 21 May a group of ladies got together for an at home coffee morning at Rina’s home, whose gorgeous garden is currently in full bloom and showing all the fullness of spring. It was a pleasure to be able to sit and chat in the warmth of the sun and enjoy some time together as our club year begins to draw to a close.

At the same time, we also held a book sale in aid of our charity, Het Bonte Perdje, to raise a few extra euros for a good cause.  Next year we will choose a new charity to support, which means this was one of the last opportunities to raise our grand total for Het Bonte Perdje.

The ladies brought their old books, magazines and other curiosities along to sell to one another. By the end of the morning, the table’s load was lightened as we each went home with a few new and interesting titles to try.

Nevertheless, a lovely coffee morning was had by all in its place. Tip: next time you’re at Rina’s be sure to ask her for a cup of her mint tea, made with leaves cut fresh from her garden. It’s the best! 😉
