St Mary's Church, East Knoyle - Building Fundraising

Pound SignsAt the end of February 2018, the churchwardens of St Mary's launched an appeal for funds to meet the ever-growing cost of maintaining the building and fabric of the church, and the churchyard. In recent years around 30 households in East Knoyle have made a commitment for regular support, and a further 25 households have been giving regularly in other ways, but in 2017 there was a shortfall in income of around £8,600, or 25% of the regular annual running costs.

We are delighted to report that a good number of additional residents have agreed to contribute to maintenance costs, with the result that we are now well over half way to our target of closing this funding gap. Contributions, from £2 per month, can be made easily by direct debit, and can be ring-fenced for the buildings and fabric of this historic building. All donors to date have been thanked personally except, understandably, those who prefer their donations to be anonymous.

If you value the presence of St Mary's in East Knoyle - for major occasions or just as a beautiful historic feature of the village - please can you help us with the second half of our appeal? An information leaflet and a simple form can be obtained from Stephen Dawson, the fund-raising co-ordinator.
