'One extra sausage for table 14, please'

Pictures from the United Benefice Parish Barbecue on Sunday, August 17th

Our luck held (or maybe it was just an answer to prayer) and the sun shone throughout the late afternoon
on the vicarage garden. There was a ready supply of bangers and burgers, with ice-cream to round the
feast off, while in the further recesses of the grounds the usual Bouncy Castle and board games
kept the children happy.

The profits from these annual events are donated to charity, and this year the money, swelled by the proceeds
of a raffle, is going to Classic fm's Music Makers, which provides music therapy for disabled adults and children
and under-privileged children, nationwide. St Faith's choir member Mari Griffiths will next March be trekking
100 km across the Sahara Desert  for the charity, and the giving of the afternoon's profits to the fund is one of
the ways in which  groups and individuals at our church are helping her reach her sponsoring target.
