Fundraising project 

We are fundraising to open up the church so it is more visible from the street. 

The project aims are to:

  • Open up the view of the church so it's more visible from the street.
  • Create a new wildlife habitat.
  • Give our trees the love they need to stay happy and healthy.
  • Signpost more people to the community garden.

We need to fundraise £18,500 by Christmas so the work can start in the spring. 

We have a number of fundraising plans:

  • Inviting individuals to donate.
  • An alternative gifts catalogue, for example sponsoring one of the new hedge plants.
  • Fill a tube of smarties with 20p's or £1's and return.
  • Patronal lunch celebration at Christ Church on 26 November will include a promises auction, bottle tombola and more.
  • Hold an event in your home for friends, for example film night, murder mystery dinner or coffee morning. 

We have produced resources to help with fundraising which you can download from this website.
