Dine with wine lunch raises over £500 towards our roof appeal

On Wednesday 17th February 2016 45 guests dined with wine at The Beehive in Cheltenham and raised £566 in aid of St Stephen’s Church. The lunch was held in order to raise vital funds towards the ‘St Stephen’s Roof Appeal. ’ which was launched in June 2015 to raise £120,000 to repair the church.

Guests were welcomed to a drink upon arrival and a mouth-watering three-course lunch. A splendid raffle was also held with prizes including two club enclosure tickets to the Hunter Chase Evening at the Cheltenham Racecourse, MOT and Service at Blade ŠKODA in Gloucester, two-course Sunday lunch at The Beehive, chocolates and much more. £5 from each lunch went towards the roof appeal. Guests also had the opportunity to write a special message on a roof tile in return for a donation to the appeal. Many tiles were written in memory of a loved one and will go onto the roof in the Spring for at least a hundred years to come.

Keep an eye out for a summer lunch date – coming soon!
