TARPORLEY Brownies kicked off their fundraising for the St Helen’s Church Tower appeal by spending a penny.

The Brownies collected enough pennies, and pounds to line them up to run from the Lych Gate at the Church down to the Rising Sun public house. They then invited the public who were visiting the Country Market to add coins to the line.

The Brownies raised a total of £283.

Rector Keith Hine said: “It was fantastic and great fun. They got all the way from the Lych Gate to the Rising Sun and then they had so many they started coming back again. Lots of people were joining in emptying their pockets, they were very generous.”
