Fundraising is on song! 

Belvoir Big Band were back at St James' Church, Burton Lazars, on Saturday, November 18th, two years on from their first visit to help us again with our fundraising for our Refurbishment Project, writes Janet King. 

We provided cheese and wine and the audience really enjoyed a wonderfully entertaining evening of music and song. A total of £320 was raised on the night and the band have already indicated that they will be looking forward to another visit when our newly refurbished church will be open for business!

Many thanks to Belvoir Big Band for a great evening and to everyone who came and helped make it such a success.
