    Weʼve raised £135 to help fund a new roof for Saint David Church

    Funded on Tuesday, 3rd October 2017

    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.


    Saint David is the local parish church for Beaufort and the surrounding area of Ebbw Vale. Whilst it doesn't have a large congregation it is an important building for the community providing a spiritual base for those who use it for funerals, weddings and christenings. Like many large old buildings maintenance is an ongoing financial commitment and the current essential is a new roof. One parishioner, Lesley O'Connell, is running Cardiff Half Marathon to raise funds towards the roof cost and any amount of sponsorship by members of the local community who have found comfort in using the church for funerals or joy in using it for weddings or christening would be gratefully received so that we can maintain this beautiful church for years to come for the community.

      So training is going well but I've learnt I'm definitely a cool/wet weather runner so hopefully the good old British weather won't let me down on 1st October. Thanks to people sponsorship both on here and traditional paper forms

      You are a brave woman! What a good community cause too! St. David's has a lot of history and the organist would never forgive me if I didn't donate!

      Happy to contribute to this lovely church, where I was confirmed, a choir member and married in 1984.
