MEMBERS of the Stow congregation of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church have raised cash for the town’s fire station.

A sponsored walk was generously supported by businesses and the local community and £1,693 was raised for the Stow Fire Station.

The sponsored six-mile walk from Bourton to Stow via the Slaughters including all age groups.

A spokesman for the church said: “We were very pleased by the many donations received. It is quite clear that the service provided by the brave personnel from Stow Fire Station is very much appreciated by the locals here and this was a great opportunity to voice all of our thanks.

“They do an excellent job and we can all feel safer in the knowledge of this.”
