At a recent Trustees meeting when various fundraising possibilities were discussed, the subject of starting a charity shop was raised. After some discussion, the Trustees decided that the costs of running such a venture, in both financial and human terms, would be prohibitive.

Tim Cox had the idea of registering Seer Ministries as an eBay charity, which would allow anyone who uses eBay to select Seer Ministries as a charity to which a proportion of their profit could be donated.
Also, Tim has taken on the responsibility of selling items directly on behalf of Seer Ministries, so that ALL the proceeds (after eBay's fees have been taken)will go towards the work of the Charity.

Watch out for seer_ministries as a seller, or if you are a seller and you wish to donate some of your takings to Seer Ministries, then you will find us in the database of eBay Registered Charities.

Yet another Barn Dance raises £1000

Once again, Tim Cox, on behalf of the Seer Ministries Trustees, organised an Autumn Barn Dance at the Jubilee Hall in Seer Green, held on Saturday the 6th October 2007. With live music from Liam Robinson and Thomas Fairbairn, billed as THE DANCING MASTERS, the evening had a distinctly Scottish feel.

Sixty people attended and enjoyed a very fine evening's entertainment. The meal - of Scottish Beef Pie followed by Profiteroles, was prepared by Marion Cox as before. There was a charity auction with many diverse lots donated by generous donors, such as "Pet Portraits" by an artist, a hand carved shepherds crook, water-ski lessons, china, glass, handbags, an enormous joint of fine beef (from J & L Mash, the excellent Seer Green butchers) and much more. The evening raised around £1000, all of which will go to the printing work of Seer Ministries in Romania.

Our thanks to all who supported us by either attending, donating goods, or by helping in the kitchen. Without your much-needed support, our work of printing The Word For Today would soon grind to a halt.
