Bells, Cakes & Ducks for Pudsey

 

Over £1000 has been raised for BBC Children in Need by Old Brampton’s Bell Ringers.Pudseys Bell Ringers

The bell ringers held an #APealForPudsey Bells & Cakes event, supported by other members of Old Brampton Church.

On Sunday 5th November ten bell ringers, including five 11-18-year-olds, rang a sponsored 45-minute non-stop ringing relay on the six bells.

During the ringing cakes and refreshments were served and a fun duck race was held, all helping to raise money.

There were 36 passes in the ringing relay, each involving a bell ringer passing their rope to another ringer while keeping the bell ringing.

It wasn’t just the ringers changing places: during the relay the ringers changed the bell ringing order more than 60 times, with each bell sounding 1260 rings.

Bell ringing is an exhilarating, fascinating and fun activity with a great social life for all ages.

Young people and adults learn bell ringing skills in a relaxed and friendly environment, and new recruits are always welcome at Old Brampton.
