Church fundraiser

Rutherglen Reformer - - Primary Ones -

Croft­foot Parish Church were cer­tainly on song re­cently.

They were hold­ing a hymn-a-thon, and mem­bers of the con­gre­ga­tion were happy to get in­volved and sing their favourite hymns.

The morn­ing was a great hit, and proved a great chance for the parish­ioners to sing out loud, as well as rais­ing funds for the church.

Carol McQuar­rie of the church, said: “It is a fundraiser for the church funds or­gan­ised by one of our mem­bers, Wilma Mor­ri­son.

“Each of our con­gre­ga­tion can choose a hymn to be played and sung on the day, and give a do­na­tion.

“The hym­nathon is held in the church sanc­tu­ary on a Satur­day morn­ing and Wilma com­piles the list of hymns to be sung, usu­ally the first verse of each, and cho­rus when there is one.

“This year, £660 was raised for the church funds.”
