Bodicote Church and Bishop Loveday School 50th Birthday Bonanza

This year, given that many former staff and pupils may wish to be involved with the 50th birthday celebrations, and may not live locally, we have decided to offer fete raffle tickets for sale online.

As with all of the profits from the fete, 5% will go to the Let’s Play Project in Banbury, 5% will go to Bodicote Scout Group’s Kitchen Refurbishment Fund, with the remainder being split between the Church and the School.

If you would like to buy tickets online, you can make payment here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/BodicoteSchoolChurchFete

Please DO NOT add gift aid to your payment. Tickets are 50p each, or £2.50 for a book of five. Once you have made payment, please either message Bodicote Church on Facebook with details of your email address, or email office.bodicotechurch@gmail.com and we will provide you with your ticket information.

Taking place in Church House on Sunday 14th May to mark the start of Christian Aid week, followed by a special service at 6pm in church.

Instead of the usual door-to -door collection, we are trying this as a new venture. Envelopes will be available in church to enable people to make their donations. These can be posted through the vicarage door (2 The Rydes), handed into any steward at church, or put through the wall safe to the right of the door as you enter church.
