Christmas carol service, Sunday 16th December, 6pm Manresa Retreat Centre, Victoria
Tomorrow is the last car boot sale of 2018. They will resume in February next year. The weather forecast looks good for tomorrow, albeit windy – we will definitely be there but might setup in the adjacent underground car park if too windy. – we will be there with lots of books, dvds, cds and general brik-a-brak. We will also be selling our 2019 diary, the Island Sanctuary 2019 calendar, plus a handmade childrens book for Christmas – details below – please let me know if you would like to reserve copies of any of them.
Thank you to Pete Lally for producing a handmade book for Christmas, with all profits going to Gozo SPCA. Its a limited edition of 100, and can be purchased from the car boot sale on Sunday, from our centre, or we can post out.
“This Christmas I have a big favour to ask anyone who has £6 (or equivalent in €/$, etc). Please can you give me that money in exchange for one handmade book telling the greatest Christmas story never told.
Printed on recycled paper made from reindeer poo (true!) and utilising ancient Elvian book-making and printing skills forged in the mountains of the North Pole, the book will help not only fill the hearts/confuse the brains of a generation of children, but it will also help support the wonderful work of the Gozo SPCA, with £5 out of the £6 going directly to the furry ones (the remaining £1 is to cover my five-a-day Christmas pudding habit). In addition to the story there will also be accompanying illustrations by mysterious illustrator TB whose work has appeared in The Yorkshire Post among other publications.”
