A huge thank you to everyone that has donated so far, the generosity and kindness you have shown to our lovely old church, St John the Baptist, without which we would not be able to push ahead with the essential task of protecting and preserving the building for future generations.
We are pleased to report having now received just over £5k, and we are therefore able to officially apply to make the Friends of Pebmarsh Church a registered charity.
This is brilliant news, as once approved, we will receive Gift Aid (a tax refund) of an additional 25% on future donations.
To save the church we need regular pledges of £10,000 every year to fund long outstanding repairs. So please spread the word and ask family and friends to help too. The fact the community has raised the first £5k within such a short space of time has given us all a boost and increases our resolve to work, with your continuous support, to keep our church from closing.
So grateful thanks to you from all The Friends team, we’re off to a superb start, so please help us to keep it going, and we will, of course, keep you posted on all future fundraising events and progress.
