At present Pat & Pete do most of the fundraising. They attend a local craft market at Bleadon Village every 3rd Saturday where Pat sells homemade preserves, cakes, pies and knitted items to support the prison work allowing rehabilitation to be a success story.
Craft Sales: The stall that you see in the picture is set up twice a year in June and November at Milton Baptist Church, Weston Super Mare together with around 25 other Craft Stalls. New Beginnings also attends other local Craft events.
PESERVES AND JAM: These items sell well, and Pat will fulfil and deliver orders if requested.
HANDMADE CRAFTS: These are popular items and Pat will knit items to order if requested.
NATIVITY SET: Another popular item sold at the Christmas Markets.
Men's Contribution: Some of the clients make models for Pat to sell, it keeps them occupied and boosts self esteem.
All this takes a lot of time and Pat & Pete are longing for the day when direct giving takes over which will give them more time to semi retire.
