24th February- We are doing this… TOGETHER

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

This evening we got back from a weekend away with friends. Whilst we headed up there on Friday afternoon the ladies of Bolton were busy limbering up for a REUmumba, Wumba Zumba session… whit whoo… its sounds like it was a really good night and I think at the last count well over £700 raised.. THANK you ALL so very much!!! I will be there next time for sure! Thank you to Heather for making the night a success and to our dear friends Michelle and Darren for arranging it all…
Friday, I headed over with my dear friend Sharon to Karen’s amazing kitchen to cook 2 courses for 32 ladies. The lovely ladies of Arnside, Kendal, Silverdale and surrounding villages were in for a culinary treat at Reuben’s very first charity ladies dinner in the village of Arnside. We cooked, baked, chatted, laughed, cried and “crumbled” in more “weighs” than one (see what I did there..) and the 3 of us drank far too much wine that luckily we had everything in hand before the effects of it. We headed over to the WI the next day to see all hands on deck, Emma and the team had dressed the room beautifully. Complete with RR fairy lights and tea lights to match….. wow!
We headed for a fabulous walk that afternoon through the woods to Holgate and back down Arnside Knott and then quick shower and change as the Ladies were arriving at 730pm. Sharon was a fabulous host and after a few words from Mummy we ate and chatted and enjoyed 3 lovely courses and the wine flowed. Then prizes and karaoke. Another fabulous amount of money raised and another successful evening for Reuben. Our friends at Arnside hold so many memories for us, and Reuben created so very many with them that it’s so bittersweet, but feels like home. Thank you ALL for your hospitality once again this weekend, for all of your friends welcoming us with their open arms and warm hearts and for the men folk looking after my dear Hubby….
We are doing this… TOGETHER… and next weekend brings to our region ELVIS and the GORjuss Tom Houghton. Friday will be another fabulous night of new memories….. if you haven’t already arranged to drop by.. please email; carmel@reubensretreat.org and be part of something wonderful… Good Night, God Bless… Mummy xxxx
