Thank you from Helmdon Church

Many many thanks to all those who organised, ran and attended the Helmdon Festival.

The Raffle raised over £150, the Garden Stall £200 and the Teas £330. Together with the generous donation by the Women's Club of the money they raised through the Bag stall and Name the Animals, nearly £1,000 was raised that day for the Church.

We are very grateful to all involved.
