Initially we need to raise £195,000 for
the Grade Ruan Roof Appeal
This is Phase One of an ongoing restoration project costing £300,000.

The appeal is to raise funds to restore the Grade 1 Listed St Grade Church to preserve it for future generations.

The extraordinary success of the appeal so far means we are now in a good position to apply to major grant-awarding bodies for much larger sums than has been possible hitherto. 

However, this is unlikely to get us all the way to our target, so we urgently need your help. The Friends welcome new members, and any kind donations. Every pound helps keep our churches for us and future generations to enjoy.

This will be updated on a monthly basis and includes funds raised from our JustGiving appeal.
