Roof-raising success at Docking Village Hall fair
A village hall in West Norfolk is nearing its target to buy a new roof, thanks to its dedicated fundraising team.
More than £700 was raised at Docking Village Hall’s spring fair on Saturday, when members put on Easter egg hunts, tombolas, raffles and games.
Village hall committee chairman Matthew Todd said: “We raised £730 at our spring fair. All together, we have raised around £40,000 and we need £68,000 to complete our roof appeal.
“It was a fantastic day and we had a great turn out. There was a couple hundred people who came along to support us.”
Mr Todd said villagers can support their appeal by getting involved in their Sponsor A Tile programme. Those who take part in this progamme will have their name inscribed onto a tile.
He added: “We only started our fundraising in October and so I would say we are doing quite well. We are hoping to have our new roof on this year, that would be wonderful.”
