Restoration Appeal and Major Projects
We continue to pray for success in our grant applications and give thanks for the people who have felt moved to support our beautiful Parish Church. Work on the roof was completed but we are unable to progress any of the other major projects until we have raised substantial funds. Click on the links in the title for more information.
Our chosen Charity for July-August is Ed Isaac
This is very much a local cause. Ed, his wife Emma and their 3 children live in the village. Ed suffered a massive brain haemorrhage and collapsed on his way to work in November 2016. He underwent life-saving surgery and is currently undergoing intensive rehabilitation at a local neurological centre. Ed is currently reliant on a wheelchair and has very limited movement down the left-hand side of his body. Ed returned home to his family in June but their house needs a downstairs wet room and bedroom; and he will need continuing therapy. A group of friends have been raising money locally to help the Isaacs to become a family once again.
See the charities page on this website (under finance), the weekly pewsheet and the charities noticeboard at the back of church for updates during the months.
