Our Summer Fayre, in partnership with Old Church, Smethwick, was a great success, despite torrential rain!

The popular annual event, held in the Centre, included a variety of stalls such as Tombola, Plant Sale, Bottle Tombola, Raffle, Knitted Items/Bric-a-brac, Kids Tombola, Face Painter, 50/50 raffle and a Games Room. We also enjoyed lovely refreshments from the kitchen, a BBQ and crepes.

The event was well attended, with everybody appearing to have a good time and it raised a total of £1766.18. The net amount raised after costs was £1,127.06 which is split between the Church and the Centre (£563.53 each).

The Church and the Centre have agreed to use some of the funds raised to purchase a Community Bleed Control Kit which will be situated outside our Centre next to our Community Defibrillator.

We would like to thank everybody involved in making the event a success including all of the volunteers and the businesses who provided some excellent raffle prizes.

We now look forward to planning the Christmas Fayre which will take place on 25th November 2023.
