Congratulation to Sanju Sabu, a member of our PPC, who had the novel idea of surrendering his locks to raise money for the Sick & Retired Priests Fund. Sanju has been seeking sponsors over the last few weeks – and to date has raised nearly £300!
The ‘off with his hair’ sponsored Head Shave was performed after Church to a packed crowd. The first cut was by Fr Paul, who then handed over to several other parishioners, young and old, some of whom had paid for the privilege to divest Sanju of his impressive thatch.
The event was blessed with fine weather and it was lovely to relax in the Church Peace Garden and to see children and adults gather together to enjoy the sunshine and each other’s company. A raffle, sale of New and Nearly New Bargains, as well as jams, marmalades and chutneys brought in some extra cash for this worthy cause. Teas/coffees cakes and biscuits kept everyone refreshed.
A big thank you to the people of St Alban’s who are always so generous – and indeed their family and friends. It’s not too late to contribute to the Sponsored Head Shave – please speak to Sanju or Fr Paul.
