‘Amazing’ Total Raised At Rescheduled Bryher Bash

bryher fete 2012Organisers of Bryher’s summertime fundraiser say they are delighted that they’ve raised £5,078, despite rescheduling it twice.

The annual fete was moved from the 10th August when it looked like the tail end of Hurricane Bertha would hit.

A second date resulted in a clash with another event, so a 4-hour Monday evening ‘Bryher Bash’ was arranged for the week before the Bank Holiday.

Kathy Stedeford says she’s “amazed” at the final total, as they had to change the format of the fundraiser to accommodate the time they could do it in. The cash will go towards the upkeep of the Community Hall.
