Christmas success at Fakenham church

Fakenham Xmas trees 344A record 1,100 people attended the Christmas Services at Fakenham Parish Church this year, following the amazing success of the Christmas Tree festival which attracted over 25,000 people and raised record sums for charity. Tony Rothe reports.

 
The highlight of the Christmas celebrations were the two Christingle Services on Christmas Eve when 360 Christingles were distributed to children, raising money for the Children's Society.

This follows on from the hugely successful 8 day Christmas tree festival festival, now in its thirteenth year, which contained 90 decorated Christmas Trees. Over £40,000 was raised of which a record £23,500 was donated to the 76 charities taking part.
