    In October 2008, over £90 was raised during the Harvest Service at St Peter’s Church, Wrestlingworth, through the sale of crafts and collection.  Vanilla and ginger biscuits made from tooke flour were also on sale!

    In September 2008, children from Wrestlingworth Lower School and Dunton Lower School in Bedfordshire, raised £250 by cutting out and colouring these paper mugs and sticking coins and notes on the back. Great thanks go to all of them and their families.

    Our concert evening with  Clare Fox (viola) and Simon Marlow (piano) in Sutton, Bedfordshire was a sell out. 80 people enjoyed the music and a buffet supper in a wonderful setting on Saturday March 8th 2008.  The event brought in more than £1200 for the project.  The Cambridge Arts Theatre generously donated the star raffle prize, two tickets to the English Touring Opera’s performance of Donizetti’s Anna Bolena.
