So many people have worked incredibly hard to make our annual Christmas bazaar such a wonderful success!
To everyone who was involved, young and old – thank you so much. Whether you were looking after the stalls, working behind the scenes, selling raffle tickets or spending your money on the day – thank you!
We decided, as a Parish Community, that we would allocate the proceeds from our bazaar this year to ‘The Sick and Retired Priests Fund’ for the Diocese of Nottingham – it’s a charity set up to help priests who have worked over many years in their service of others and who have now either retired or are unable to continue their ministry due to health problems. Over the next 3 years, as a parish, we are asked to try our best to raise £40,000 towards this charity, so the money from the Bazaar will most definitely help towards it!
Once again, a big thanks to all of you for your continued generosity and support, it’s very much appreciated.
