Once again the Children’s Society box holders have been very generous, the total sum collected was £1,051 which was a little above last year’s record. This was a combined effort between the three parishes of Feniton Payhembury and Escot aided by a few people in outside parishes.

All the money we collected is sent to the society towards helping vulnerable children and young people. Through the Societies network of services all over the country they are there for children when they feel they have no one they can turn to for help. Last year alone they helped 13,000 while their campaigning brought changes to more than 3 million.

I cannot thank the box holders enough for their generosity and should anyone who is not a box holder wish to have a box in which to put odd change because every little helps please contact me.

With much gratitude,
