Summer Fair Thanks
Our Summer Fair on Saturday 18
th August raised £310.00. Thank you to everyone who came along to support us and a special ‘thank you’ to all the lovely people who turned up to help. The PCC especially, worked very hard to make the event a success and looking at the number of people who were in the church building, I think we can say it was!
The money raised for the church will be added to the funds that pay for the upkeep of the building and general running of the Church.
Over £80.00 was raised on one of the stalls for the charity

‘Bees abroad’. This helps the poorer communities in Africa
to work their way out of poverty by keeping bees using
sustainable local resources. Thank you to everyone involved.

Food Bank
During the school holidays, those children who get school meals, need a little extra
from the food bank. Suitable items can be left in the basket at the back of church.
3 days of emergency food supplies have been given to nearly 6000 people the last year, including nearly 2000 children. They also given 25 tonnes of food to children as part of the Holiday Lunchpacks for kids scheme. The latest appeal is for fruit juice 1 litre, jam (not homemade), tinned puddings, tinned tomatoes, Smash.

There is a selection of books at the back of church
for you to borrow. A small donation is appreciated.

Money Matters
I am writing to remind everyone who has signed a gift aid mandate in the past that they must be paying tax to take part in the Gift Aid scheme and that they should let me know if they no longer pay tax, (increases in personal allowances may have put some people out of the tax bracket). Whilst I am all for encouraging getting tax back from the government I do not want anyone to get into trouble with the Inland Revenue.
On the subject of the Gift Aid Scheme please can I ask that envelopes for individual payments are filled out properly or I cannot claim the tax back on their donations (as I don’t have everyone’s addresses I cannot fill this in for them), if you just want to use the envelopes for a donation then please just cross out the gift aid form on the back.
If making a donation by cheque then please could you make it out to ‘Raughton Head PCC’ as this is the name of the Church account, there are several All Saints Churches in north Cumbria and the bank likes things to be clear!
If anyone would like to make regular donations by standing order direct from their bank then please let me know and I will give them a form to enable this. My telephone number is 016974 76463 and email is
kaytech@btinternet.com or kaytech@live.co.uk .
Finally I would like to remind everyone that private financial information is just that, PRIVATE and I will not discuss it with anyone else, not even PCC members. I will also keep written information stored securely.
Thank you to everyone who supports the Church, whether it is financially or in other ways, they are all important.
Kay Robinson (PCC Treasurer)
