Duns Tew's Virtual Church Fete

Who would have thought you could hold a church fete on line?! Well, somehow, Duns Tew managed it!

Thank you to everyone who participated in our virtual church fete this summer: to those who donated, cooked, baked, delivered and - of course - bought. Thank you also to our amazing team of organisers (Carol, Sarah, Clare B and Clare H) who made it all possible.

So far, we have raised an amazing £5,300! We hope to be back next year in our more normal guise and look forward to seeing you all then. Thank You Duns Tew.

A few of the highlights:

The ‘Potpourri of Autumn Produce’ was relocated on-line at very short notice, but everyone still came up trumps with produce, plants and cakes and we were able to raise over £250.

The Grand Raffle Draw was also more subdued than usual but raised nearly £1,000 in raffle takings and a further £1700 in donations. Thank you to everyone who gave us such brilliant prizes with special thanks going to: Nicholsons’ Nurseries, Karcher, Tolly McRae, Soho Farm House, Brockway Carpets, the White Horse, CK Leatherworks, Eagles of Deddington, Mark’s Cotswold Bakery, North Aston Dairy, Nelly & Dove and to all those who donated bottles of wine and other goodies. Thank you also to Clive Tompkins at Cherwell Graphics for printing the raffle tickets and to everyone who distributed and bought them.

We had a very successful Silent Auction and would like to thank the generosity of Smiths of Bletchingdon for the 15 tonnes of aggregate, to Sebastian and Charles of Farms and Gardens Ltd for the hedge laying experience and to Sarah Chambers of Brook Pilates. Thank you also to everyone who bid. The silent auction raised nearly £600.
