Hymn marathon for chapel cash

UPTON Methodist Chapel celebrated its 190th anniversary with a weekend of festivities.

A flower festival, exhibition and anniversary lunch gave members the chance to reminisce and celebrate.

And organist Jenny Fotheringham raised £675 during a sponsored hymn marathon.

She played 823 hymns starting at 7.30am and ending with a Songs of Praise service at 7.30pm.

The total raised over the weekend was £1,100 which will go towards the upkeep of the chapel.
