In the very great heat that dawned upon us on the weekend of the 17th July, Trustee Andy Evers undertook his ‘Walk 100k in One Day’, aiming to raise money for life.
We are delighted to be able to report that he completed the walk in 21 hours and was still standing at the end. WELL DONE!
So far he has raised £1330 and his GoFundMe page is still open. You can donate in support of the life project …. https://uk.gofundme.com/f/100k-in-a-day-for-Life
The Parish Halls
There have been a few interesting developments for the project over the last month which are still ongoing and for which we are very thankful and hopeful. At this point it appears we have a number of options for moving forward with renovation and use of the Halls, and we would appreciate thoughts and prayers as negotiations take place. We cannot yet predict the outcome but we look forward to being able to share more in the near future.
We are looking for volunteers to help us run a Safe Space Coffee Morning. The idea is to offer booked times and spaces to a limited number of people who have been unable to feel safe meeting others over the last months. This way we hope they can feel secure in socialising again.
It would be held at Dronfield Baptist Church initially and then would hopefully be trialled at other locations. We would be looking to start in September.
If you think this is something with which you could help please contact Becky Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org
We recently took up the offer of holding a charity stall on the newly re-opened Dronfield Market and were delighted to be able to meet and chat with a number of people. We shall be repeating that on August 12th and this time we are looking to have a charity calendar with superb scenic photography by Andy Evers & Chris Nowell. It will be on sale for £10. Volunteering packs will be available so that if you want to help you can learn more about what we might need in the future
A massive Thank You to all those of you who give or have given to life, whether individually or as a church or organisation; as a regular monthly gift, a one off, or by supporting events and outreaches. You have helped us reach over £100,000 towards this project which still has a way to go. But we are so very grateful for your support and encouragement.
Dronfield should be filled with sunflowers very soon as the competition to grow the tallest and biggest Sunflower with Dronfield in Bloom and life hots up, and the many seeds planted around the town shoot up and burst into glorious flowers.
