Riley, Primrose and Bluebell completed their charity walk on Saturday 12th December dressed in their best Christmas/elf clothes! They walked for 3 miles around our beautiful bay.

After a final count of sponsors, they raised £124 for Children's Hospice South West, who care for children with life limiting, or life threatening, conditions. Many at St. Martin's took part in sponsoring them - and we were glad to do so. Hannah - their mother - on the children's behalf, says a big Thank You to everyone who supported them.

The girls also gave in their reverse advent calendar at Sainsbury's and Asda (for the food banks), and then gave their shoe-boxes full of gifts to families affected by domestic violence and an old peoples home. The children also made enough Christmas Cards to give to all the congregation at our services on Advent 4, our Midnight Mass and again on Christmas Morning.

What busy little elves! We congratulate and thank them for their fantastic efforts.
