Boys Brigade book sale nets £2,000+

THE 1st Alford Boys Brigade has moved to thank the generosity of local people after they revealed that their annual book sale had raised a large four-figure sum.

The popular annual event was held in St Wilfrid’s Church in Alford over the August Bank Holiday. And, now that the money has been counted, the Brigade has revealed the event raised over £2,000.

“Parents and officers of the 1st Alford Boys’ Brigade would like to thank all those who contributed and attended the annual book sale,” said a spokesperson.

“There was a fantastic turn out and the weather was very kind to us. We hope to see you again next year.”

The money will help with general running costs.
