Raising the Funds

..............................

David Spashett is embarking on his Nepalese trek to the Mount Everest Base camp!

Details here.

As well as holding our own events to raise vital funds for our Reshaping Our Resources project, we’re also seeking the support of the community to help us realise our vision for the future of our church.
We’d like to thank AllChurches Trust Ltd for their generous grant of £1,500.

Our fund-raising events so far…

The weather was absolutely perfect for our afternoon tea at Bolton Hall in July.
A fabulous team of volunteers were busy in the Victorian Kitchen whilst under the marquee kindly loaned by Wensleydale Rotary Club another team were busy preparing the Pimms. There were a host of lawn games and it was great to see so many people enjoying the afternoon.
We are very grateful to Lord Harry Bolton, Tesco, Andy the Baker, and the Wensleydale Rotary Club for their generosity in supporting the event to generate all-important funds for our Reshaping Our Resources project.

As part of Leyburn’s 1940’s weekend we held a vintage church fête with games and stalls.

In late August 2017 Leyburn PCC member Jeremy Burchill embarked on some Munro Bagging to raise funds for the Reshaping our Resources project.
What’s Munro Bagging?  For an explanation and examples, go to the VisitScotland website.
