Weʼve raised £170 to save St Leonard's Church, Grendon Underwood
- Funded on Friday, 10th November 2017
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.
As residents of Grendon Underwood know the majority of the lead was stolen from the roof of the church in October 2016, and there is currently a fund raising exercise in progress to meet the estimated repair cost of £200,000.
We have estimated that the roof area is 113 m², however, in order to simplify the arithmetic we intend to offer 100 m² which will provide 1000 – 1 foot x 1 foot units for sale, we will charge £20 for each unit. For each unit purchased we will produce a certificate which will record the reference of the area bought. Furthermore, when the scheme is up and running, we intend to hold a free monthly draw of all purchased units with the successful owner receiving a small prize.
We hope that people, who would not like to see the church close, will take up this initiative.

I couldn't make the launch event, but hope a small donation helps to sponsor a tile.
