News from Tadworth & Walton Overseas Aid Trust
Christchurch in Walton-on-the-Hill was the venue for “Sing Carols” led by Reverend John Gordon to raise funds for TWOAT. The highlight of the evening was provided by a choir from Walton Primary School who beautifully performed a repertoire of songs from their Christmas Show based on Dickens’ story of Scrooge. The generosity of those attending contributed over £350 to TWOAT’s 2019 Christmas Appeal to provide funds for various schools that TWOAT supports.
Over twenty carol singers gathered at St. Peter’s Church gate on Friday 20th December to raise money for TWOAT in the streets and pubs of Walton. The party proceed up and down Breech Lane before cutting through the footpath to Meadow Walk then up Duffield and along to Sandlands Road. They visited David and Val Larner’s garden overlooking Mere Pond to be photographed by their Christmas Tree. After a brief stop to serenade patrons at the Blue Ball, they proceeded via Pond Farm Close to The Chequers where the staff kindly provided mulled wine and a delicious array of hot and cold snacks. The residents of Walton were very generous and over £500 was donated during the evening.
