The inclement weather may have forced King’s Lynn Minster’s annual summer fete indoors on Saturday but it did not stop them from beating last year’s final total.
Almost £1,600 was raised and Peter Johnson, one of the fundraising committee said: “When I heard the final figure of what we had raised I was beside myself. It was very wet but we are up on last year and that’s a phenomenal effort from everyone.
“It’s a town church for town people, so credit to all of the people who made it such a great success.” There were childrens’ games, cake stalls, bric-a-brac, as well a very well-supported raffle which was organised by Brenda Steele.
Mr Johnson thanked Sue Nulty and the rest of the fundraising team for all of their efforts.
