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. As well as being a collecting point for shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, there was also an area where people were able to leave items for the Cambridge Foodbank.
An amazing £2,797.50 was raised at the Fair and we would like to thank everyone for their support for these worthy charities.
Do come along to the Pop-Up Coffee Shop at the Methodist Church from 8:45 – 11:30am tomorrow, 9 January which will be raising funds for Home-Start Royston & South Cambridgeshire, a charity which helps local families in need of practical and emotional support.
Come along for fairtrade tea, coffee, cakes, pastries, whilst supporting this worthwhile charity at the same time. More info at: www.hsrsc.org.uk

The annual Church Fete was held this year on Saturday 16th of September and was a great success in spite of the showers and at times, stormy weather. The heavens really did open during the afternoon; gazebos flapped furiously in the wind and the jousting platform became even more perilous with the added challenge of the rain-soaked beam and sodden dueling batons (actually sacks filled with something squidgy).
