Cromer's 40acts of Kindness - a lesson in giving out not giving up
The event runs from 10am-3pm on Saturday 3 December, with light lunches and cakes available. Rosie Whitmore and Joe Press will be making a guest appearance in their cowboy costumes at the festive fair in Newton Flotman around 12 noon.
They will be exploring the stalls and meeting some of the parishioners who are helping to raise money for the church.
The fair was initially intended to raise money to make the building more of a space for community events but now money is going to have to be diverted to replace the lead following November’s theft and also increase security at the building.
It is the second time the church has been targeted in recent months following an attempted lead theft back in May.
The Revd Canon Sally Gaze said:
“Newton Flotman is a wonderful community, We’re all pulling together after the lead theft and still intending to invest in adapting our building for more community use as soon as possible. We’re really looking forward to having Ben with us. The fair will be lots of fun”
The cast member’s visit comes amid rehearsals for this year’s pantomime which opens on Tuesday 13 December and runs through until Thursday 15 January.
John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said:
“Rosie and Joe are delighted to visit and help support the fundraising efforts. The festive event is a key part of the church’s calendar and it is great to have the chance to help them end 2016 in a positive way. Oh yes it is.”
Rosie and Joe said:
“We are very excited to come along and meet everyone at the festive event. It is for such a great cause and we are really happy to give our support.”
