The Hartford Victorian Christmas Market was held on
Saturday, 30th November and, as usual, the outreach team had a
stall. This year we were supporting the Mid Cheshire Foodbank
and, as well as distributing information, we raised funds by
selling bric a brac on the stall. A total of £135.85p was raised
through sales [£78.20] and donations [£53.65].
For several days, including the day of the market, a container was sited in
the Co-op for people to make donations of food and this goodly collection of food has now been delivered to the Foodbank warehouse in Winsford.
Residents of Hartford were alerted to this collection via the
Village Facebook page which was used to advertise what the
church was doing. Some food was also brought directly to our
We also sold copies of the Action for Children quiz which
raised £27 and Christmas cards were sold to raise a further £70
Thank you to everyone who donated bric a brac or who visited
us at the stall on the day.
