Fun, friendship and fundraising were the admirable ingredients of a winter fair entitled JAM, which has provided a welcome boost to St James the Great Church in Brinsley and neighbouring St Michael’s in Underwood. Co-ordinated by church stalwarts Lee Gordon and Penny Fell, the event held at Underwood Miners Wefare raised a rewarding £850 plus a donation from local historian and author Stan Smith, who launched his new book at the event. Teamwork played its part and a variety of stalls were on offer.
