A collection taken a the Carols Around the Tree raised £69 for the Friends of Yeovil Hospital. The annual Kingsdon Christmas Draw raised £777 which will go towards the development of the community shop. The prizes for the draw were donated by villagers and included a hamper worth £150, and a basket full of cider.  Of at least equal value was the beautifully decorated tree shaped Christmas cake which some people had been watching take shape on Facebook!

Full details of both events can be found in Issue 101 of the Kingsdon Chronicle.
