On Friday 29th January 2010, we were delighted to welcome many of the sponsors, charity representatives and helpers that contributed their time, money and hard work to make our 4th Charity Christmas Tree Festival and Christmas Market such a success. Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera, but over 50 representatives of a wide variety of organisations -local businesses and charities - joined over 50 of our own workers for an excellent buffet meal. It was fun to get together with some of the many lovely people we'd met at the event. It was a most enjoyable and convivial evening.
John Feneley thanked everybody for their help and support, without which the event could not take place, He also told us that the sponsors had provided £1,500 to pay for all the trees and that between them the charities had raised a little over £1500. In addition, the market raised more than £2000 for St. John's, for which we are extremely grateful as it is much needed to keep the church running at the level it currently does.
Note for your diary:- the next Charity Christmas Tree Festival will take place on 10th and 11th December 2010
