Raising money for Christian Aid
The Fair in the Square is a free community event run entirely by volunteers for the benefit of the local neighbourhood. Every mid June, on a (hopefully) sunny afternoon, Pond Square comes alive with music, dance and a huge variety of community stalls and local businesses. Not to mention live sheep shearing!
Fun – and raise funds!
Pond Square Chapel have been at the festival since its inception. We love to see our neighbourhood come together. And we also take the opportunity to do some serious fund-raising for Christian Aid. Over the years we have taken our prowess with our bake and make stall to new levels and added Traidcraft products, children’s face painting, Teas in the chapel and a bookstall to our efforts.
Christian Aid is a fantastic charity that works to support initiatives all over the world helping people in dire poverty, regardless of race or background.
We also have volunteers involved with Winter Shelters, community lunches and running our Sunday services.
