On a lovely August evening, Derbyshire's Wirksworth Christian Aid group hosted their 10th annual summer party.
Hosted in the wonderful garden of committee members Bob and Jill Rhodes, the party raised a record £1,250 towards Christian Aid’s Harvest Appeal. With 1:4 match funding from the EU, this means the event raised an incredible £6,250.
The residents of Wirksworth enjoyed the live music, a fine spread of food and drink, a fresh produce stall, a raffle and an information board about the Harvest Appeal.
Tom Wyke, our Regional Coordinator for Derbyshire, was there with his family and said, “It was such an enjoyable event. I would like to thank all the committee for their hard work and support in organising such an occasion”.
