ODE TO GIVING AND RECEIVING

We’ve been very busy
We raised quite an amount
And the time has come
To give all of it out.

We wrote to good causes
“It’s our Cheque Presentation,
Please come to our evening,
You’ll get a donation.”

Wirral Narrow Boat Trust
And INCU babes came,
Charles Thompson Mission
And more I will name.

Wirral Youth theatre replied
Response came too,
St Johns Hospice, SOBS,
To name but a few.

Mary’s Meals had some rucksacks,
A cheque for the Refuge,
We all had a buffet.
The attendance was huge.

Some pictures were taken,
The Mayor gave a speech.
The Charities were called up,
He gave a big cheque to each.

The night came to an end.
Oops – I almost forgot,
We had other cheques to send,
SIGBI’s project and Cancer research.

A great night, you’ll have to admit
We’d worked hard all the year
And we’d all done our BIT.
