“Last year, Daffodil Sunday raised more than £12,000 to support the upkeep of the six lovely ancient church buildings at the heart of the Revel villages.

"This year, we won’t have much of this money,” Jim said.

“We’d really appreciate it if you could help maintain these buildings by donating what you might’ve spent on your entry fee to Daffodil Sunday, so that we can continue to maintain the local church heritage.”
