Gidding Garden Party raises £400 for charity

Sue Shepherd and Mary Read are delighted to announce that last Sunday’s Gidding Garden Party raised the marvellous amount of £400 to give directly to The Green Backyard allotment project in Peterborough.

Sue Shepherd adds “As members of the PCC we were very aware of the Church’s ongoing need to raise money. Despite this we all felt that perhaps this time the Church could reach out and give rather than take and that just maybe we the PCC as representatives of the Church could do something that would be of benefit to our community and at the same time help those much less fortunate that us i.e. the Green backyard.

We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our Great Gidding friends and neighbours. It would be good if future events could continue in this vein of giving and sharing.

Many thanks to everyone who helped by coming along to the event and by contributing cakes, plants, donations, time and effort”.

    This was a wonderful event held in the late summer sunshine. Many people had donated fab cakes ( true Gidding style) and a fantastic collection of flowers, plants, produce and local craft.

    Thank you to everyone who supported the event in so many ways.
