Save Our Spire: St Bart's Fundraising news
Thursday 9th September 2021
Fundraising activities to support repairs to St Bart's Tower are now underway. This page will report progress and provide news of forthcoming events.
You can donate to the fund via our Just Giving Page.
Launch of the Appeal
The appeal was launched on Saturday 3rd July Over a thousand pounds was raised on the day – thank you!
Those fortunate enough to be in and around the Churchyard were treated to a truly uplifting experience following the months of lockdown; they lingered throughout the afternoon and evening enjoying the live music provided by the Gumbo Flyers, and savouring the delights of the barbeques and drinks from the bar in the ambiance of the beautiful churchyard.
In the evening, they were treated to a magnificent concert by our Town Band inside the church. This proved to be a truly enjoyable way to springboard the appeal to raise funds for the tower repairs.
The parishioners of St Bartholomew’s have already raised sufficient funds to carry out emergency repairs to the spire, and, those of you who lift your eyes upwards to it will be aware of the excellent work which has been carried out by Peninsular Access steeplejacks to reduce the damage being caused by water ingress.
Find out more about this event in the August edition of the Bridge.
