Over £1,000 was raised and bags and bags of food donations too were received on the evening. If you would like to continue to support the valuable work of the Salvation Army you can drop off food donations to the Church during opening hours. At the moment they are asking in particular for: tea bags (40s), hot chocolate, coffee, biscuits, jam, sugar, long life milk, fruit juice, squashes, baked beans, cereals and soups. Many thanks.

Our 2018 Christmas Fayre - report
The church was packed on Saturday, 2nd December with people attending the annual Christmas Fayre. It was a colourful sight with many stalls packed with attractive Christmas gifts as well as the more traditional stalls. The St Osyth Community Choir sang Christmas songs which added to the festive spirit. Refreshments were enjoyed as was the mulled wine and mince pies.
The Christmas raffle was a very attractive sight as all prizes were temptingly wrapped and drew admiring comments as well as ensuring people bought tickets!
All in all a really enjoyable morning which raised £2200 for Church funds.
Many thanks to all those who supported the Fayre either as a stall holder or by attending. Particular thanks go to William Stevens who has led and organised the event for many years, we are enormously grateful to him. As this is his retirement year, it is just great that the Fayre has raised its highest amount ever. Thank you William.
