Lego Show to help those in Poverty

Lego Show to help those in Poverty

Ely is playing host to a showcase of Lego models including Big Ben, Tower Bridge and the incredible Brick on Sea Lego City which includes fairgrounds, trains and a variety of buildings.

For those who want more hands-on fun there will be the opportunity to take part in a Lego version of Robot Wars.

Father and Son Duncan and Callum Bridges (DC Lego Creations) are putting on the Ely Brick Show in aid of the city’s Christian’s Against Poverty (CAP) Debt Centre, who last year helped 48 families and individuals from the area.

After visiting Lego shows elsewhere the duo decided it was time to put on their own show with some of their own creations, not just sets. Their enthusiasm for Lego meant Duncan has bought himself a log cabin to store and make his Lego creations in, when his spare room became too small and his attic was taken up by their Lego City.

“We are pleased to host this fantastic display as part of our own support for the important work of the Ely CAP Debt Centre, which has seen its case-load increase over the past year” said Karl Relton, minister of the Countess Free Church.

The show will take place on Saturday 16 March, 10am until 4pm at the Countess Free Church on Chapel Street, Ely. Admission (pay on the door): adults £3, children £1.
