The long-awaited appeal has now been launched in the Parish, and may I thank those who attended the briefing sessions. I am very pleased to say that we have made some headway already with regard to reaching our total of £100,000.
The total reached, (including the three years of standing orders with gift aid) has now reached just short of £25,000. This is a great start. If you would like to make a donations, whether one off or over three years please complete one of the A6 cards at the back of Church and return it to the Presbytery. After the summer there will be some special fundraising events, details and dates to be given soon.
I am hopeful we will reach our target that will unlock a seven-year loan from the Diocese to be paid back through Hall rentals. This will allow this much needed project of hall, lavatories and basement refurbishment to take place, and in turn assist the Parish in her mission, catechetical, pastoral and social.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.
