Bags of Ideas and Growing Fundraising at St. Mary and St. George parish Totnes

Plants on the way to CAFOD Stall

St. Mary and St. George have raised over £400 since lent this year.  Recently they have done a sponsored slim, plant stall and are hoping to start a fruit and veg box over summer, all in aid of CAFOD.

It does not need to be anything complicated a simple stall at the back of church with an honhesty box will do.
