Event raises more than £1,000

OUR grateful thanks go to everyone who supported the special coffee morning held at St Cuthbert’s Church in Bedlington on July 16 to raise money for the famine relief in East Africa.

There was a tremendous turn-out despite the dreadful weather.

We raised £1,050 to be sent to the famine relief.

Members of Trinity Church contributed widely to the home produce stall and many of the shops on Bedlington Front Street donated prizes for the bumper raffle. A huge ‘thank you’ to them.

Finally a very big thank you to the people who supported the event, without whom we could not have sent such a large sum to the famine relief.
