raised for Highbridge church at day-long live music marathon
£1,000 was raised for a Highbridge church when it held a live
music marathon on Saturday (June 16th).
John's Church organised the day-long event through the day with
a steady stream of members of the public dropping in.
Sharon Crossman from St John's Church told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Over
100 local singers and musicians took part, from choirs and bands
to organists and soloists."
added: "Our huge thanks to everyone who performed - you were
amazing, to all who kept us well fed and watered - you were incredible,
and to all who donated because we raised £1,050. Enormous
event ran for 18-hour and 57-minutes, starting at 04:03am and finishing
at 11pm. It was that long because St John's was consecrated in the
year of 1857 to tie in nicely with our fundraising."
included the Coastline Singers, Rock Choir, Drop The Mic, King Alfred
Band and the Ukulele Group.
