Busking vicar helps to raise funds for Highbridge church hall
busking vicar has helped to raise hundreds of pounds towards much-needed
repairs to a church hall's roof in Highbridge.
Sharon Crossman from St John's Church picked up her guitar and
played popular tunes outside the church on Saturday to boost funds
for the hall's roof, which suffered serious storm damage earlier
this year, as we reported
played outside the church's annual summer fair on Saturday, which
was well attended by supporters, who visited a number of stalls
selling a wide range of items from cakes to books and plants.
Crossman, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The Church
Hall roof is still under repair so this year we had hoped for
a very sunny day to hold our fair outside."
that seemed a very slim possibility we decided to hold our fair
in the beautiful surroundings of St John's Church. We were well
supported and raised over £850 pounds which will all help
to secure the roof, replace the electrics and re-decorate so that
this popular community resource will soon be fully opened."
She added that anyone who would like to make donations towards
the hall can do so via The Vicarage, Church Street, Highbridge
with envelopes clearly marked Church Hall Roof. Cheques should
be made payable to PCC St John's Highbridge.
