Cel­e­bra­tion a royal suc­cess

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Or­gan­is­ers of Hor­sham Unit­ing Church’s ‘royal baby’ cel­e­bra­tion are over­whelmed by the gen­eros­ity of the com­mu­nity.

More than 100 peo­ple helped cel­e­brate the birth of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first child Archie at the evening event, which raised money for the church as well as do­na­tions of gifts for in­fant ser­vices.

Event co-or­di­na­tor Jan­ice Mer­rett said she was sur­prised by the com­mu­nity’s gen­eros­ity.

“Peo­ple are very gen­er­ous. I can’t be­lieve how many do­na­tions there are to sort through,” she said.

“It was a roar­ing suc­cess, and for me per­son­ally, it was great to see so many peo­ple en­joy themselves and be able to do some­thing for the com­mu­nity.”

The event raised $1740 for the church and volunteers will de­liver baby gifts and do­na­tions to Wim­mera Base Hos­pi­tal’s Yandilla ward and Unit­ing Wim­mera.

It was the church group’s fourth royal func­tion.
