There was even a children’s corner run by the Rollett family where getting the sticker in the right place on the church.  All the proceeds are given to charity and this year there were three which are the Emmaus Communities, Starlight Children's Foundation and the Township School, Knysna, South Africa. They will be sharing £2,100.
