As at last year’s August Bank Holiday Monday, the St Paul’s Church is to hold a fete all day long in and around the church on Monday 29th August. With sponsors and stallholders already in place, the fete is set fair to raise money towards the church’s project to repair the church and renovate its community facilities. But most of all, the organisers want local residents and visitors to come and have fun.
Plans for the day include a range of stalls featuring local businesses, their products and crafts, music and dancers, bellringers and church tours, food and drink outlets and a raffle. Reverend David Tomlinson says he is excited about the plans that have bene made and optimistic that the fundraising campaign will benefit massively:
“In the run-up to the 250th birthday of the Jewellery Quarter’s St. Paul’s Church, our fundraising group is aiming to raise £250,000 for the church’s 250th birthday. I performed the official launch of the fundraising campaign at last year’s summer fete.
“Last year’s fete was a wonderful occasion. I believe we can offer even more joyous fun and celebration this year. And the more people spend and donate on the day, the closer the church gets to having the roof repaired, the tower strengthened, and the community facilities modernised. There are still opportunities for sponsors, for stallholders and for volunteers to help make the fete a success.”
Anyone who would like to know more about becoming a sponsor, having a stall at the fete, or helping with the arrangements for the fete is asked to contact David Kidney:
