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.
