St Mary’s Church raises £16,280 for Youth Talk in 2019

We were thrilled to welcome David Barker, Chief Executive of our 2019 Charity of the Year, Youth Talk to our 9.30am service last week to hand over the tremendous sum of £16,280 from our year’s fundraising efforts.

A huge thank you to everyone who donated, bought tickets to events, sponsored Will on his epic A-Z hitchhiking adventure, or got involved in any other way.

You have all made a real difference to the young people now and in the future who will benefit from the help and support of this wonderful charity.

Keep your eyes peeled for news of our Charity of the Year for 2020!

To accompany this they will perform Mozart’s lively divertimento in F, K138, a short set of dances by the Hungarian composer Leo Weiner and Dvořák’s engaging and popular “American” quartet.
