Thank you to everyone who helped out in the Library at the Anstey Gala on Saturday 7th September.
Every year the Anstey Gala Committee run The Anstey Gala on the Rec Ground, where our Library is situated, and this gives the Library volunteers a wonderful chance to invite local residents to have a look round and see all that we have on offer – a beautiful library, but also so much more, including our Cafe, Community Shop and Library Garden.
This year we raised £717.35 towards keeping the library open – with a plant sale, stalls, games and refreshments and we want to say a big thank you to everyone who supported us. Our LCC funding continues to taper and soon we will need to find the approx £14,000 a year in running costs entirely by ourselves, so these events really do make such a huge difference to us.
We were also really pleased to hear that our lovely friends at Digby’s Hedgehog Rescue, who regularly join the Library for our events, raised £200 towards their brilliant cause.
Our next big fundraising event will be our popular Annual Anstey Library Santa Grotto …. details to follow soon!
