Today (Saturday) we’re hosting the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley’s International Awareness Day. There are displays illustrating the many wonderful projects overseas that are supported by the Rotary Club. Our Church looks far different than normal but you’ll be assured of a warm welcome if you pay the Rotarians a visit.
On Saturday Haworth Parish Church will host the Rotary Club of Haworth & Worth Valley’s annual International Awareness Day. From 10.00am until late afternoon the Rotarians will display many of the international charities and projects with which they are connected. So why not drop in for a cuppa and a chat with a friendly group of people and browse around the displays. There’s no admission cost but if you feel like making even a small donation towards the cost of staging the event and Rotary projects it would be very much appreciated. Some of the projects the Rotary Club supports are the battle to eradicate Polio from the world; Traidaid, Days for Girls, Emergency Box and others.
The Friends of the Brontes’ Church have made a substantial donation of £25,000 towards the Church’s Restoration Fund. The presentation took place during today’s service at St Michael and All Angels.
Friends Chairman Peter Breed, who is also the Churchwarden, and Friends Secretary John Huxley presented a cheque to the Rector, the Rev. Peter Mullins.
Mr Breed said: “We hope this money will go a long way to help pay for the essential re-wiring work within Church.”
Rev. Mullins commented: “We are very grateful to the Friends for their hard work and for the money that will go a long way towards meeting the bill for the re-wiring.”
