Christmas Shoeboxes for Ukraine
Many of you have the red shoeboxes handed out at the October Farmers Market and also at Anthony’s Quiz night. We are getting quite close to our deadline, when we will need to have these boxes back for collection and then transport to Ukraine.
We are very grateful for anything you can do for shipment of Christmas boxes to Ukraine.
- Would you please bring them either to the Brayford Chapel and leave them in the porch, or to the November Farmers Market at the Village Hall on November 12th. This will be the last day before they are collected at High Bray Church on Sunday, the 13th.
- Even if you do not feel you can fill them, we would be most grateful if you can bring the empty boxes back.
Can you help by making a donation towards the expenses of getting the Christmas shoeboxes to Ukraine? Please contact Madeleine & Jonathan Brownell on 01598 710389 or come to the November 12th Farmers Market.
Please see the attached flyer for full information - supplies for Ukraine.
All are welcome! - it is a community celebration of songs, supper, savouries, sweets and thanksgiving for all that we share in our community. No need to reserve. Just come as you are to enjoy time together.

As you know the Churches of High Bray, the Chapel, & Charles launched a ‘Ukraine Appeal’ a month ago to support the emergency assistance for Ukrainians, both inside and outside of the Country.
So far, our communities have raised £2,722 (!) which has been sent to ‘Computers for Charities’, a Sussex based charity which has aided refugees and the dispossessed in Eastern Europe since the late 1990’s through local church organisations in those Countries. This donated amount is a remarkable achievement for our small community, and more donations come in weekly.
As the need in Ukraine continues to grow daily, if you feel you can assist, would you kindly contact one of the following:
Can you help?
Please either send a cheque made out to: ‘High Bray PCC’ with a note saying it is for the ‘Ukraine Appeal’.

The High Bray Church Tower Appeal Auction has finished and with extra donations raised £ 5,000.00. We are very, very grateful to all who took part in participating in the Auction and to those who offered donations towards the Appeal.
From all those who enjoy High Bray Church and its Churchyard
High Bray Church has been open to our Village for over 800 years: for Services, Easter & Harvest Celebrations, weddings & funerals, and more recently 'Puddings & Song', Bell Ringers, the Singing Group, and the School Christmas Play.
Now the tower needs urgent repair, and if not repaired, it will limit the use of our Church.
This auction is to help raise the £32,000.00 which is needed to repair the church tower. All proceeds will go to the tower repair project. We are very grateful for any support you can offer!
The online auction is LIVE now - please use the link below to get involved.
