raised of £500,000 target by 12 supporters

Weʼre raising £500,000 to save Grade 2 listed Haddenham Baptist Church on 'Heritage at Risk' register. Our Community Fundraising Goal is £75K (£25K raised to Sept 23)

Don't have time to donate right now?


Haddenham Baptist Church is in a poor state of repair. Urgent restoration work is needed to save this historic and unique witchert-built building. We are organising community events and activities to raise at least £75,000 locally before applying for bigger grants from Trusts and Foundations. £24,000 has been raised in the community so far (as at July 23) so we still need to raise at least another £50,000.

The Appeal was launched in November 2022 to raise up to half a million pounds to save the historic witchert Baptist chapel. As well as being a Grade 2 listed building, it has been added to Historic England's "Heritage at Risk" Register and Bucks Council's Local Heritage List. This list represents “sites that are locally important and reflect local character”.

    75 year old local resident, Peter Appleby will be cycling 35 miles on 16th Sept from the Baptist Union HQ in Didcot to Haddenham. In 2009 Peter was diagnosed with cholangitis, making him prone to infections and leading to a liver operation, a 5 month stay in hospital and eventually a successful liver transplant. Peter says “My motivation is to raise money for the “Hat and Boots” Appeal as well as the places where I received excellent care and treatment, at the same time as keeping myself fit. I'm very grateful for any support. Thank you”.
