    Weʼve raised £9,598 to carry out essential repairs to our beautiful church

    West Dorset District, UK
    Funded on Saturday, 1st September 2018

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In the tiny West Dorset hamlet of Littlebredy, at the head of the Bride Valley, is the perfect, small, stone-built church of St Michael & All Angels.

    For several years the village has been fundraising to carry out significant and much-needed essential repairs to this remarkable building, much loved by all who visit.

    Over the last five years, £20,000 has been raised from local events - a remarkable achievement in a settlement of 40 houses. £40,000 has been gifted by generous donations from private individuals, and a further £17,500 has been donated from grant-funded aid.

    The total repair costs are £100,000. We now therefore need to raise a vital £22,500 to complete the fundraising and allow repairs to this building to be completed before further damage occurs.

    Owing to a very generous donation made as a result of this campaign, we now only require £12,000 - of which well over £8,000 has been raised at this time.

    We are, therefore, really on the final push of fundraising and as a result we are turning to the generous support of wider communities - committed to preservation, and to the maintenance of a small but significant piece of living English heritage - to assist.

    The entire fundraising committee are incredibly thankful for your consideration of our cause, and we are personally grateful for all the help and pledges that you are able to make.

    Thank you.

    Ben Pentreath & Charlie McCormick
