The fund-raising event was part of a campaign to enhance the potential of the church as a community hub, making the building a more welcoming space by improving lighting, kitchen and toilet facilities, while retaining its original architectural features.
The lots included a week in a luxury apartment in Portugal; a bespoke model of Morph by Peter Lord of Aardman fame; original work by local artists and other skilled craftspeople; tickets to see comedian Mark Watson in Bath and much much more.
Frenetic bidding resulted in the fantastic sum of over £7,000 being raised, backed up by many large donations from local residents and businesses. The Masons of the Provincial Grand Lodge of Bristol are due a special thanks for their generous gift.
Reverend Emma said: “Community Spirit is clearly alive and well in Westbury Park. Thank you to all who contributed in any way to this memorable occasion.”
