On Saturday evening the Community Choir and Suzie’s Singers put on a fundraising concert to raise much needed funds for church. Like most places, our church has suffered financially over the last 2 years with very little money in offertories and, of course, we could not put on events to raise money. Yet bills still had to be paid.
Thank you to Suzie for offering to do this fundraiser. It was a wonderful evening of singing. Thank you to the Community Choir and to the solo performances by Suzie’s Singers. The children who performed solo were wonderful. A big thank you to Mario for not only singing in the choir but, also, playing a bongo-type drum (apologies as I am not an expert on the types of drum there are) and for organising the backing tracks and amplification. Mario also played guitar and entertained us prior to the concert and during the interval.
We wish to thank the following people:
Members of the choir (and Alison from church) who made cakes to have with refreshments.
Sharon and Glenys for donating biscuits and wrapped cakes.
Marg, Wendy, Lynn, Linda, Glenys and Suzie for donating tea, coffee, sugar, milk, squash, etc.
Alison, Alison and Lynn for serving refreshments and clearing up afterwards.
Linda, on the door taking the entrance fee.
Marg, for running the Marbles in a Jar activity and donating the prize. Also, for running the other activities that the choir had donated prizes for.
Wendy for running the raffle.
Many people who donated items for the raffle.
Tony Breakwell for a £50 donation.
To Suzie and the choir for the beautiful flowers presented to me.
Thank you to our esteemed guests: the Deputy Mayor of Sandwell Councillor Jackie Taylor and her consort, husband Mr Marvin Taylor.
Finally, a big thank you to everyone who supported the event.
We are very grateful to all of you. In total, you raised £458.68. Thank you!
Here is a slideshow of a few photos from the event:

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NO LONGER BEING DONE.
THANK YOU! (Royal Visit to Wednesbury talk on 8th March 2020) A big thank you to Ian Bott and for all of those who kindly helped before and on the night. It was a huge success and raised a great deal of money for the church. A special thank you also goes to Mario for the entertainment. Thank you to the Bell Ringers for welcoming people into church, just like the bell ringers welcomed HM Queen Elizabeth in 1962. The evening raised a staggering almost £900.00. THANK YOU ALL!
