CHURCH members are hoping their latest donation to a deserving cause will prove a blooming success.

Some of the money raised at a parish family barbecue in the grounds of Sedgefield Rectory earlier this year has been used to buy garden bulbs and compost for the monthly memory cafe held at Sedgefield Fire Station.

The congregations of St Edmund’s Church and St Michael’s Church added donations of plant pots and baskets.

The memory cafe was launched almost two years ago to enable anyone with dementia, family members or their carers to meet for a drink and a chat in a safe and friendly environment.
