Charity Fair – November 2017

The Charity Fair, organised by Haslingfield Methodist Church, was as popular as ever and the church was packed with people buying from the stalls of the 17 charities and then enjoying delicious home-made refreshments.

An amazing £2,797.50 was raised at the Fair and we would like to thank everyone for their support for these worthy charities.
