Zoom Quiz Calling

St Mary’s Church is running a fundraiser Zoom Quiz to support the work of their Families Worker, Jo Jeffery. Jo’s work impacts many in the village and includes activities such as:

  • helping with the Toddler Group,
  • running the Larder providing food parcels to families impacted by the pandemic, &
  • running RE lessons, prayer spaces and wellbeing courses for Heathlands.

You don’t have to have a full house to join in, if you are alone there will be a chance to ‘buddy up’ with a partner online.

To ensure you are able to join in just email Liz Dixon and she will send you the link. There is a suggested donation of £10 per household, details of how to donate will be given on the night.

This Zoom quiz will start at 8 pm on Saturday 20th February.
