MacMillan Coffee Morning/Frenchic Fun!
Friday 20th September, 10.00am-3.00pm FREE
We are hosting a MacMillan Coffee morning to raise money for this very worthwhile charity and you are all invited! Bring a friend, drink some coffee, bring some cake, eat some cake and have a natter!
We will have a demonstration area set out for you to try your hand at some of the Frenchic products if you wish. Perhaps you have been wondering how to mix the Frensheen paste or would like to see the various wax finishes. If you are new to Frenchic you might like to bring along something small such as a photo frame to paint to see how quick and easy it is. We will also have some boards available for you to practice on.
Another fun activity for you to try is Floral Cupcakes!
In addition we will have some fabulous Raffle prizes to be won on the day and we will let you know what these are nearer the time. 100% of money raised on the day will go to the Charity.
To make it even more of an amazing day we are offering 10% off all our gifts and Frenchic paint during the Coffee Morning Event.
Please come along and support us, everyone is welcome!
Held in memory of a very dear friend, Dawn Underwood 1963-2015
