Have a cuppa for eye hospital

MEMBERS of St John Fellowship, Todmorden, are inviting people to a coffee morning at Central Methodist Church on Saturday, June 9.

Members are raising money to support the Jerusalem Eye Hospital in the area around Palestine and Gaza.

The number of patients seen has risen to more than 107,000 and operations have increased by more than 400 a year.

A quarter of all patients seen are children.

The outlying clinics are being used more because of the difficulty in travel.

Fellowship members thanked people for their continued support and hope the coffee morning, which will run from 10am until noon, will be a full house.
