Fundraising & Events

Yes, we really do need to keep at the fundraising.  We have several projects to take forward – and support for all our fundraising events is a great way for members of our congregation (and others….friends, neighbours, relations and colleagues) to engage in something specific and targeted to both our immediate and long-term needs.    Peter Stretton (549837) heads the Events team…please let him or the Churchwardens or Vicar know if you have any bright ideas for possible fundraising events…..especially if you would like to mastermind the running of one.  You can also email events@strobertschurch.co.uk


Current events:

The successful Quiz Night on June 15th raised in excess of £500.  Congratulations to the two successful teams who tied for 1st place…..and thanks to Peter Stretton the Quizmaster, Christine Littlewood the raffle manager and all who helped put on a thoroughly enjoyable evening

 


Beer Festival – October 5th & 6th…..put it in your diaries

 

Current projects:

Clock faces and mechanism – go to the Clock Appeal page


Altar Frontal – the new Ordinary Time (Green) altar frontal, pulpit fall, bookmarks, burse and veil were dedicated on Trinity Sunday.

Let us know if you would like to contribute specifically for this – either individually of by way of an event you can organise.  Ted is putting the sponsorship proceeds of his Belgian trip (see above) towards this project

 

 


Choir robes:  the choir needs some new robes.  One proposal is that these could be funded by ‘crowd funding’ (past successes for this were new hymnbooks and re-covering the chairs) where individuals sponsor one specific item (or proportion thereof!)
