That figure may well rise further as some contributions were still coming in after the event.

It seems this sets the fund-raising effort well on their way towards hitting the target amount that will ensure the church can be adequately protected from the elements.

Don’t forget the further events still to come. these include the Christmas Fayre on the 26th of November in the Carriage House and a Quiz Night on the 3rd December in the Winton Arms. More details can be found here.
