Recent fundraising efforts

The community has been coming together over the past few months with some fantastic fundraising events, including:

The Hundred Hills Challenge

Sophie Edginton, one of our congregation, dusted off her running shoes to take on her first Ultra Marathon - the 50km Hundred Hill Challenge on 16 March 2024 - billed as "an extremely challenging event"! This 80% off-road race takes in 4,000 feet of ascent and 4,000 feet of descent - the equivalent of running up and down Ben Nevis. Sophie says “It was daunting, but every step was worth it, with every penny raised going towards a cause I really care about.” You can still sponsor Sophie: Just Giving fundraising page.

 

Christmas Present Appeal

During advent, visitors to our church offered gifts in the shape of donation labels for our Christmas present appeal. Our stocking was well and truly full by the time Christmas came round – with over £1,000 of donations. Thank you to everyone who donated!

 

 

Creative ‘Build-It’ Arts Day

Sidonie from our congregation ran two lively Artventurers creative art sessions for children up to the age of 7 raising over £380 for the building project. A huge thank you to Sidonie and everyone who came along.

 

 


Churchyard Teas

Cream teas and a wonderful range of home-made cakes went down a treat at the annual churchyard teas, raising over £900 in the process. A massive thank you to all the bakers and helpers for their wonderful efforts and to all the consumers for their donations!

 

 

Choir Concert

It was standing room only at St Mark’s church as the parish choir delighted the audience with its performance and raised over £950 for the building project. Thank you to Derek and everyone involved in staging the event and to all those attending for their donations.
