    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The clock at St Dunstan-in-the-West is one of the oldest in London, and certainly one of the most interesting. Installed just after the Great Fire of London in 1671, it was the first clock in London to have a minute hand, with two figurines striking the hours and quarters with clubs, turning their heads whilst doing so.

    The present clock was installed in 1738 before, in 1828, being moved to the 3rd Marquees of Hertford’s house in Regent’s Park. The Great War saw the Regent’s Park residence housing soldiers blinded from combat. The charity which undertook this went on to name itself after where the clock in the house came from: St Dunstan’s. Our clock was returned to the Church in 1935 by Lord Rothermere to mark the Silver Jubilee of King George V.

    Sadly, the clock is now in a significant state of disrepair and without £85,000 of urgent repairs, this historical monument in Fleet Street will very soon stop ticking.

      Thank you to all who have contributed to the St Dunstan in the West clock appeal. As those who walk past the Church will observe, the clock has undergone a full make-over and is now sporting a bright new coat of paint as well as the vital upgrades required to keep it ticking. The full cost was more than the Church has fully been able to fund so please continue to think of us in your on-going charitable giving. Thank you for contributing to this most worthy of causes. It is appreciated by all those who use the Church for prayer and leisure.

      A big thank you to all those who have donated so far. Here is our Parish Clerk, David Powell, at the top of the bell tower looking at the minute hand figures.
