Campaign to restore Duxford village clock
- Credit: Archant
Time is money for the Duxford Parish Clock restoration appeal where each £1 donation equals one minute.
The hands are counting down to the £8,000 target – which is“midnight on October 29 when British Summer Time ends.
As the appeal has so far raised £3,370, the hands currently are positioned at 5.05pm.
To boost funds for the work on St Peter’s Church tower a specially commissioned exclusive batch of “What’s the Time?” biscuits are being sold this Saturday, August 12, on a charity cake stall outside Boots the Chemist in Saffron Walden.
Joanne Depradines-Smith, clerk to Duxford Parish Council, said: “We have six hours 55 minutes to go before we reach our target of £8,000 - which we are aiming to do before the clock strikes 12.”
