St Laurence Church: 
Trussell Trust Christmas Appeal 2017 
A huge thank you to everyone for your very generous support for our Trussell Trust Christmas Appeal. 
Our collection of special Christmas items weighed in at amazing 117.3kg and included lots of savoury and sweet biscuits and snacks, chocolates, Christmas puddings and cakes, and tins of ham. 
Thank you also to the group of volunteers who spent an evening at the foodbank warehouse in Salisbury. We packed a total of 30 family and 23 single special Christmas boxes – a fantastic effort. 
The Trussell Trust is very grateful for all our support. 
Thank you to everyone who donated food or money at the Harvest Festival service on 1st October.  
Due to your generosity we were able to deliver 90.1kg of food and £39 in cash to the Foodbank. 
This is in addition to our regular monthly collection - through which we have now donated an amazing  
5 tonnes of food since we started in 2006.  
Goose Fair 2017 
A very big 
thank you 
to everyone who helped in so many different ways to make the Goose Fair such a success. 
The church looked wonderful, filled with crafts of every kind, home-made and home-grown 
produce, bygones, as well as the exhibition by the Downton History Group.  
The delicious refreshments were much appreciated, as were the children’s games and raffles. 
The day was enjoyed by visitors and helpers alike, and raised much needed funds for the church. 
Thank you one and all! 
Now that we have our new facilities, we'd like to say -  
Pop in for
