Email from St Mark's Church fund raising concert 07-10-2017
Thank you so much for all your efforts on Saturday night & entertaining us so well. It was a brilliant evening & I'm very grateful for the strummers donation. Please pass on my thanks to everyone. I'm pleased to say we managed to raise £568.71, most of which was gift aided, so we did very well & our kitchen should be totally finished by this Friday.
Certainly hope you can revisit next year & play for us in the hall, so we can 'bop' around a bit better. Maybe a summer event with drinks & cake.
All the best.
CLARITY ON CHARITY - We are very proud to have supported (and will continue to support ) charities and charitable events. A huge thanks to all who supported our last 4 annual festivals and numerous other events which has enabled us in turn to support worthy causes. We donated £500 from our funds to Air Ambulance from our last festival, plus £121 taken on the day at their stall. We also donated to Christian Aid, Prostaid and Macmillan Cancer Support from our funds and fund raising night. The previous 3 festivals enabled us to contribute over £1550 to Zoe's Place Baby Hospice. We are also proud to have supported and performed at numerous diverse charity events from the outset, including local fund raising events for individuals and schools. A huge thanks to all Strummers and public, whose wonderful positive participation make it all possible. - David Jenkins
