Following the United Reformed Church's Dickensian Christmas Craft Fayre held in the Village Hall last November, it was decided on this occasion to give the £500 raised to Crisis — the charity for homeless people. Not only did it successfully boost this deserving cause's funds, it later transpired that the Church achieved a landmark event by being the charity's 2 millionth donor.
Over the years the URC has organised a number of events such as lunches, book mornings and coffee mornings and has made donations to some very worthwhile charities including the Taunton Association for the Homeless, Open Door (another charity for the homeless), ShelterBox, School in a Bag and soon, on 24 March, the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance.
