North Lopham’s village fete has returned with a £900 sum having been raised for charity
The success of a returning village fete has enabled a pair of publicans to donate £900 to a charity supporting the local community.
Louise and Martin Griffiths, owners of the King’s Head in North Lopham, welcomed dozens of people to the pub for a traditional fete in September – and were blessed with brilliant sunshine for the fundraiser.
Thanks to the generosity of those in attendance, the couple have since been able to present a cheque for £900 to Tony Osler, chairman of the trustees for North Lopham Relief in Need Charity.
“We were extremely proud to be able to present a cheque for £900 to Tony, on behalf of everyone who helped make the fete a success,” said Mrs Griffiths.
“The charity exists to provide support to anyone who is in serious difficulty, with winter fuel, school uniform costs or just struggling to keep their head above water.”
Mr and Mrs Griffiths hope the fete will return in 2024.
