Helena's Fund Raising Jump



On 19th July our Reverend Helena Buque did a tandem parachute jump at Headcorn Airfield in Kent. This was to raise much needed funds for the stained glass windows which are in urgent need of attention. After the jump Helena said "It was fantastic to do and can recommend it to anyone. It was lovely to have done something exciting while at the same time raising funds for our beautiful church." Sposorship monies receieved so far are in excess of £1000 and may even double when all collected. If you haven't already do and want to donate, please go to the JustGiving page in the Events column of this page.
