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.

STAND (Stannington & District Library Group) was formed in 2013 after two public meetings that explored the issues raised by Sheffield City Council’s announced withdrawal of formal support for Stannington Library. Since then, the group has been formalised, a committee was formed and teams of volunteers were recruited
