https://my.give.net/sainthildasA big thank you to all who wrote us letters of support: We had water dripping in during our Brockley Max events to underline the need for a roof restoration. We got through the first stage of our application and a site visit is soon to happen form a case worker for the landfill surplus charity. Our request for an uplift from the government scheme has been granted. So our final target to raise is 98k over the next 6 months while the scaffolding is up. Here's the appeal summary and some photos of the dilapisations and water damage.
St Hilda’s is at a critical point in the project to restore Crofton Park’s feature ‘Arts and crafts’ building: Slates are slipping at increasing rate; water is coming in; ornamental stone work is crumbling letting freezing water run down the walls to destroy the pointing. We need felt and insulation to keep the heat in, and to reduce our carbon footprint. Our aim is a watertight and warm church which will carry on serving our community for another 100 years.
We’ve worked hard fundraising for 17 years, and now hope to raise £25,000 locally toward the shortfall of £98,000. Will you help us with this last stage of the journey?
St Hilda’s is a hub for so many people - ‘the Undercroft’ is dedicated to community activities all week —you may have voted there in recent elections; so many people enjoy the beautiful worship space when attending events such as those which happen at the Brockley Max in addition to Sundays, Baptisms, funerals, weddings, and special Christmas services. We host school visits and assemblies too.
