Take a bow King’s Sutton – Over £6,000 raised for local causes in the first few weeks of summer

Village resident Kevin Kennedy captured these moments from the Church Fete on July 8

The past month or so has demonstrated that the residents of King’s Sutton are nothing if not generous in the support they give worthy local causes. Fundraising events in the village have so far this summer raised over £6,000 for community organisations.

Things kicked off on June 23 with sponsored “Toddler Building” by the Preschool, which has so far raised almost £3,200 (and counting) for its new premises. There’s still time to donate, by the way... Click here for details.

Two weeks later on July 8, the Playing Fields Association held its “Summer Madness” fete on the Rec at the same time as the Church’s annual fete. It might have been assumed that the very popular Bodfest, held that weekend just a couple of miles away in Bodicote, would have reduced the chances of either King’s Sutton fete doing well. Happily, however, the sunshine brought the crowds out in good numbers for both village events. Summer Madness raised over a thousand pounds for the Playing Fields, while the church fete brought in some £1,800 – a fantastic achievement!

It’s reassuring to see our traditional community spirit is still alive and well in King’s Sutton. Long may that continue!
