Kat Miller's Coffee Morning in aid of the Alzheimer's Society

Look for the orange Be!
My friend, Kat Miller, she of the title, is organising a wonderful Coffee Morning which will take place on Saturday the 4th of May, 10am to 2pm, at the BeValued building on Moy Avenue in Eastbourne (BN22 8LD for sat navs). Although the venue is our works canteen, the event is open to the public and if you take a look through the fantastic list of raffle prizes below, you'll see why you need to turn up and buy a strip of tickets! The list was up to date when I wrote this post, but Kat's adding to it all the time so there'll be even more by the 4th! There will also be a bake sale and Kat's got volunteers lined up to create all sorts of delicious cakes, a tombola that has some great prizes, a book stall, a handmade jewellery stall and an Avon stall. Plus, we've just heard that Barclays Bank have agreed to match whatever Kat raises up to a maximum of £750 which is a wonderfully generous donation and it would be fantastic to hit that total. 

The whole event is part of BeValued's 20th Anniversary Year. The company is celebrating by trying to raise £20,000 for charity. (We're up to £7,500 at the moment and it's only April!). Kat's Coffee Morning is in aid of the Alzheimer's Society and you can read about why she has chosen this charity on her Just Giving page. If you're in town on the 4th, do take a few minutes out to come along. The BeValued building is in the Technology Business Park, the entrance on the left after Gosden's and before Courtlands Road. There's a big car park and you can also take the opportunity to discover the St Wilfrid's Hospice furniture shop while you're there! I believe Kat is planning to decorate the place with balloons so it will be obvious where you need to go, but unfortunately the canteen is upstairs so there's no wheelchair access - sorry about that.
