Ale and Arty Charity Festival raises over £3,000
Once again, the Ale and Arty Charity Festival held at and run by St Peter's Church, Henleaze, raised over £3,000.
The Festival brings people together from all over the Henleaze area to enjoy all kinds of craft: craft and art to buy (courtesy of We Make Bristol artists); craft to make (children's art activities); and craft ale (plus wine and prosecco) to enjoy throughout the afternoon and evening of 12 October.
This year the Festival is providing funds for local refugee and asylum seeker support charity B.friend, for the Loaves and Fishes food bank run by the Sisters of the Church in St Paul's and for international development work St Peter's supports on a long-term basis.
The organisers are keen to thank all the stall holders who came for the afternoon and The Watermelon Jazz Band and The Deltics who entertained everyone so royally with their music in the evening.
