Churchyard Trust tea thanks

We are very pleased to say we raised £617.45 for the maintenance of the churchyards. All the bakers and helpers did a wonderful job!

Church Fete – Can you help please?

Church Fete – Saturday 29th June 2019  – Finchampstead Memorial Park

This is a major fundraiser for our Parish, & there are currently a lot of monetary demands at all three of our churches.  We are looking for various forms of fete sponsorship.
For example, could you or the company/organisation where you work:
· Sponsor a game or a children’s attraction?
· Sponsor or provide product(s) for a stall (e.g. refreshments, teddy bear tombola, lucky dip, guess the weight of the cake?).
· Do you have a contact with a garden centre, adventure park, bakery, beauty or hair salon, estate agents, hotel or spa, golf club, pub or restaurant, who may be able to provide a voucher for the grand draw, raffle or silent auction?

Please speak to Carolyn Fox or Nicky Alder if you are able to help or would like more information.

Many, many thanks for your support.
