The congregation of Elstow Abbey has presented the the SMART Prebend Centre with a cheque for £2000 to contribute to their CRIB fundraiser.
SMART CJS CEO, Anita McCallum, was bowled over to receive the surprise cheque from Father Paul Messam at the Parish Communion held on Sunday 2 February.
The money was raised through the Advent and Christmas Carol Service collections and from a number of members of the church who took part in the Big Sleep out.
Elstow Abbey has had a long connection with the Centre, acting as a collection point for clothes and food throughout the year.
However as The Reverend Fr. Paul Messam said, “There are also times when cash also can make such a difference to a vital organisation such as the Smart Prebend Centre.”
