Galleries Charity of the Year Update

Fundraising at Galleries for St Peter's Church - Disabled Access Appeal closes at the end of October. Penny Murray and Rachel Moore write:

"As our Charity of the Year time draws to a close, we want to thank everyone who has supported us in so many ways. The collection boxes in the Galleries have raised over £400 to date, which is amazing! We are grateful for everyone’s generosity, including our grant of £1000 from FLISCA. 

Our recent jumble sale raised around £1100, after expenses, and was a great success. People from all parts of the community came along to help - providing jumble, manning stalls, supplying cakes, etc. It was a great team effort!

Having received planning approval for the disabled access route from BANES, our full plans, which include a re-ordering of the church itself, now have to go the Diocesan Advisory Committee, and we hope to have a decision by the end of January. Once we have cleared that hurdle, we will be able to start applying for grants, etc., although we will still need to raise funds ourselves, as many of these are allocated on the strength of being able to show a commitment to the project within the community.

Meanwhile, a great big THANK YOU to you all at the Galleries. Not only have we been able to raise much needed funds, but it has allowed us to raise the profile of this worthy and local project."
