Fundraising Success

Church funds are roughly £6500 richer thanks to the efforts of: Heather Gorton and Alison Godsal and Co. who raised over £2000 with the Festival of Flowers; Barbara Ellen-Mitchell and Becky Sarjent who raised a further £1000 plus from the Cafe they ran at the same time; then Becky and Barbara again with the Country Fair, which contributed well over £3000.

This injection of cash is to the benefit of us all. It helps fund God’s work here in this parish. Thanks to all who have helped in any way, shape or form in this magnificent effort.

Thanks from Africa

The Rev’d Eric Charlesworth has received a letter from TWAM (Tools With A Mission) thanking the people of Fairford for their donations of sewing machines. These machines are sent to areas of need especially in Africa.
