Grand job at char­ity art show

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than £1,000 was raised for a church char­ity this week­end de­spite the poor weather.

St Mary’s Church, in Ash­mead Lane, Den­ham, held a two-day art show fea­tur­ing lo­cal artists.

The event also in­cluded a tombola, bric a brac and ‘home­made’ stalls.

Or­gan­is­ers were pleased with the amount raised and were happy that most of the stalls sold out of goods.

Wendy Cope, who was man­ning the home­made stall, said the event went well.

“I think ev­ery­body there en­joyed it,” she said.

“The art ex­hi­bi­tion went well.”

Visi­tors also en­joyed guess­ing the weight of a cake – which weighed in at two pounds and six ounces – and the com­pe­ti­tion to win a teddy bear.

The event was a fes­ti­val for the church’s pa­tron saint, St Mary, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­wards the up­keep of the church.
