Christ­mas in July fundraiser

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

St John’s Angli­can church in Nagam­bie hosted a suc­cess­ful Christ­mas in July fundrais­ing lunch and games af­ter­noon re­cently.

The Christ­mas-themed ta­bles, hats and re­galia gave off a fes­tive at­mos­phere that was en­joyed by every­one.

The Nagam­bie Lions Club helped to set up, serve and clear up the feast, while the lunch was pro­vided by the parish.

Lo­cal en­ter­tainer Rus­sell Turner sang Christ­mas songs and helped Santa be a hit with the kids.

Hamish the Scot­tish Pup­pet starred in a short Christ­mas play, as­sisted by Fr Gary Ather­ton and his wife Karen Ather­ton.

Peter Le­jins, 17, was the Master of Cer­e­monies and Val Har­vey was the quiz games mis­tress, and they led the teams through lively trivia and ac­tion games which took some con­cen­tra­tion and skill.

The ‘left-handed helpers’ team led the aca­demic games but were just pipped at the win­ning post by the ‘bibs and bobs’ team. The ‘Hamish’ team was third, while Coral’s ta­ble won the booby prize.

Lucky door prizes were drawn then the ma­jor raf­fle of the day.

First prize was won by Cheryl Mens­feld, sec­ond prize went to Glenys Le­jins, and third was won by Peter Le­jins.

St John’s would like to thank those who contributed to the day or came along and joined in the mid-year Christ­mas fun.
