The Trustees are delighted to share the news of not one but two £20,000 anonymous donations. With funds now standing at over £50,000 the Friends are much better able to support the PCC’s plans to create a more useable community space at the rear of the church by improving the heating, installing a toilet and kitchen. Further details are here.

Large donations are enthusiastically welcomed but the importance of more numerous regular donations cannot be overemphasised. Applications to grant giving organisations can be made soon and, for a community based project, it will be the number of Friends members that will impress them as much as the total already raised. Membership costs only £10 per year (though you can always give more). Links providing details of The Friends objectives and how to join are above in the For More Information area.
