Gary, who lives on Hopping Hill East Terrace, hears the church bells every Sunday and when a flyer about the church’s appeal for funds came through his letterbox, he decided to help. The outcome was a concert featuring a group of talented friends of Gary who perform under the banner of Starving for Art.
‘I have felt such great community spirit since I moved into the village two years ago,’ says Gary, ‘and I felt we owed it to the memories of the people working at the Mill who built the Church to make a success of this concert, allowing the church to continue being a place of worship, servicing the community.’
Photos of the concert can be seen below…
Gary is already thinking about a further fund-raising concert, so watch this space.
