The Friends of the Brontes’ Church, Haworth Church’s support organisation, showed a profit of £15,000 on their trading during 2023. This takes the total raised since they came into existence in 2012 of £97,000.
Peter Breed, the chairman of the Friends as well as being Churchwarden at Haworth Parish Church, was able to report the healthy figures at the recent Friends of the Brontes’ Church Annual General Meeting in the Old School Room, Church Street Haworth.
He said: “We were able to return such good figures in spite of having to absorb some of increased costs. ” At the same time he paid tribute to the volunteers who had given so much of their time that the Friends shop within church was open so many times during 2023.
The existing Committee of the Friends was- re-elected en bloc to serve again in 2024.
