Four stalwart women braved a very cold and windy night on Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent) and slept in our unheated church in order to raise funds for the maintenance of the building. They had to bring everything they needed with them but were deprived of the comfort of their warm beds, bathrooms etc. They all found the experience a challenge but were rewarded by a gamut of emotions and a warm breakfast provided by Vicky Gumm on the Thursday morning! The women in question are Carol Neilson (from Tarrant Hinton), Diane Huxley, Fiona MacEwen and Annie Colligan. More photos to follow.
There is still time to sponsor their effort, either by donating in person to any of them or through JustGiving on
