In June 2017, when the Phoenix Choir came and performed in St Helen’s Church, we launched our Tricentenary Appeal. Our aim was to raise over £89,500 for the installation of a toilet, a kitchen facility, exterior lighting from the church to the car park and lychgate, and to improve disabled access to the church.
We have held many events, concerts, a flower festival, and we have asked many organisations for grants. As things stand today, we have reached the staggering sum of £85,000!!!
So …………… with only £4,500 left to reach our target I feel sure that work will definitely commence, and hopefully be completed, this year!
We just wanted to say a very big THANK YOU to everyone in the community who has supported us through this time. We really couldn’t have got this far without you. Watch this space for further updates and look out for the building work commencing (hopefully) very soon!
