St Mary's Village Carnival 2010
Posted on October 7, 2010
Now that the dust has settled from this year's Carnival we are able to let you know that the Organisers have been able to donate the magnificent sum of £12,800 - the same total that was achieved in 2009 despite the more difficult economic climate. A massive 'THANK YOU' to everyone who has contributed to this total in any way.
As usual, half of the money is for St Mary's Fabric Fund, half of the remainder goes to our principle charity, the Keech Hospice care and the rest has been distributed among local (or locally connected) good causes, in line with commitments resulting from the Carnival or as requested by people in the villages, as follows:
