AUTUMN FAYRE RAISES £1,400+ FOR CHARITY

St Columba’s first Autumn Fayre for two years, held on October 3, raised more than £1,400 for charity.

Hordes of parishioners enjoyed a successful get together, in the process benefitting five parish charities. They are the Ahotokurom leprosy village in Ghana, which St Columba’s has sponsored and supported for more than a decade; the Guides; St Vincent de Paul, which helps people in need; and the Union of Catholic Mothers as well as boosting parish funds depleted by Covid.

The breakdown was as follows:

As well as lots of bargains, parishioners were able to enjoy some delicious and tasty snacks, meals and drinks. That was in addition to having the opportunity to meet old friends and update each other on family events and future plans.

Grateful thanks to all those who worked so hard to make it possible.
