Highbridge music marathon raises over £800 for youth project

A music marathon held at a Highbridge church throughout Saturday (January 21st) more than £800 for a local youth project.

The 12-hour event in St John’s Church
included music from more than 20 performers, including organ players, choirs and local bands.

Organiser Reverend Sharon Crossman told "The music marathon was a great success."

"Within our 12 and 3/4 hour period we had an enormous variety of acts."

"It was great to start off the day with a 1/4 peal being rung on our church bells by neighbouring bell ringers."

She added: "It was fantastic to bring so many members of the musical community and their supporters together."

"We managed to raise £814.70 for the Highbridge and Burnham Youth Project."
