AN art exhibition in Boroughbridge has raised around a thousand pounds towards funds for a church in the town.

The St James Boroughbridge Annual Art Exhibition was held over the May Day bank holiday at St James Church and featured around 250 paintings by nearly 50 artists.

The preview evening for the event, featuring music performed by David Bellwood and members of the Palm Court Dance Orchestra, attracted 40 people and there was a steady stream of visitors throughout the weekend.

Money was raised through admission charges, painters’ entry fees, and commission from sales.
