Over the last three months, people at St Thomas' Church in Henbury have been fundraising for four local charities:
- Friends for Leisure
- Just Drop In
- The Rossendale Trust
In return for a small fee, members of the congregation were able to choose a favourite hymn for inclusion in the church services. This activity raised £155, which was added to the £145 donated in return for refreshments after the services.
The four charities were all delighted to hear that they would each be receiving an equal share of the total £300 raised.
Many thanks to everyone involved in these fundraising activities.
