Smarties for all

On Sunday 19th April, the Building on Success team gave out over 100 tubes of smarties. In return for the free chocolate, welcomed by many in the congregation who had abstained from chocolate during Lent, the committee asked them to fill the tube with cash. The tubes will take 35 £1 coins, making them on of the most expensive sweets on the market when the tubes are returned! However, the congregation were advised that any loose change could be donated, and that it was a great way of including children in the fundraising activities. One enterprising member of the church sold individual smarties to work colleagues for £1 each.

 Tubes are due to be returned on Sunday 31st May. Details as to how much has been raised will be published during June.
