Langham News – June 2017

June 17/18 – to celebrate among other special events, the life of Jo Cox, Father’s Day and the official birthday of our Queen. It is scheduled to start at 6.00p.m. on the Saturday with a welcome, drinks, games and live music. At 7.00p.m. there is to be a barbecue as well as bring and share food. There will be a bar. Then more music and dancing followed by a film – and finally an opportunity to “champ down” in the church overnight. Next morning there will be Lonely Hearts Club Yoga with echoes of Sergeant Pepper (50 years old today) and Dad’s accompanied bike ride – and then breakfast. Finally an act of worship in the church. Some may wish to stay all the time, some may prefer to come for a short time. All are welcome.

Jenny Morris was a PCC member, choir member, past Treasurer and in many other ways contributed to the life of Langham church. Donations were made to Sarcoma UK which receives no government funding. An extract from the letter of thanks:

“You have chosen to remember Jennifer’s life in a powerful way. Your gift of £1618 is already having an impact on the lives of people affected by sarcoma right across the UK. Your donation is funding our National Support Line, where our specialist nurses provide information and lend a listening ear to anyone who needs it. You are also ensuring that our researchers can continue their vital work in finding an effective treatment. Thank you once again for ensuring Jennifer leaves such a positive legacy. Together we can transform the lives of everyone affected by sarcoma.”
