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. Please let 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.
Most recent events:
St Roberts-tide, Autumn Beer Festival and Family Fun Day, Friday to Sunday, September 22nd – 24th.
Midsummer Barbecue and Garden Party
After an enforced Covid-break, the choir was back organising the biennial Midsummer Barbecue and Garden Party at 12 Rossett Green Lane on Saturday, June 24th. Barbecue, stalls, games, bar for beer, wine and soft drinks, and raffle from mid-afternoon to evening – provided good company, fun and games for all ages. Congratulations to all organisers and attendees, who raised £1184 for funds.
Peter Stretton ran one of his excellent quiz nights in the Chapter House on the evening of Saturday, April 22nd. There was hot competition to win …fuelled by some excellent home-made on-site chilli con carne from Monika and Rachel. Christine Littlewood organised a raffle. An overall total in excess of £700 was raised as a welcome addition to church funds.
