Members of Christ Church, Stannington, and volunteers from Stannington Library came together in November to raise money for both organisations. Baked potatoes with a variety of fillings were served, followed by a specially written, potato-themed Famous Quirky Quiz created especially for the occasion. Contributions on the night and other donations realised £200, and this has been divided equally between church and library.

Food for thought – church-goers and library volunteers fuel up before tackling the potato quiz.
STAND was formed in 2013 after Sheffield City Council announced its decision to close sixteen libraries (including Stannington) unless volunteers took them on. STAND was registered as a charity in 2014 and is funded by grants, donations and fund-raising activities. The library is run by a team of dedicated volunteers.
