Bellringers Fund Raising for 700 Club

Fund Raising for 700 Club


Following a successful fund-raising effort by All Saints’ hand-bell ringers during the run up to Christmas, a cheque for £1550 was presented to the 700 Club on Sunday 17 February at All Saints’ and Salutation Church, Blackwell. Shoppers had donated generously as carols and festive songs were rung at ASDA, Morrison’s North Road, and Sainsbury’s supermarkets. A donation from the church carol singers was also included. The cheque was presented to John Elliston of the 700 Club.  John said, “The 700 Club began when 700 people came together to make a difference to the lives of those who were homeless in Darlington; this generous donation stands in that same tradition of local people acting for the common good. We are very grateful to the Bell-ringers and to the public for contributing to this important work”.  Since 2000, the hand-bell ringing group have raised over £30,000 for charities, including Great North Air Ambulance, various cancer charities, Alzheimer’s Society, and local organisations such as Age UK Telephone Befriending Service, Darlington Town Mission, Darlington Samaritans and St Teresa’s Hospice.
