Weʼve raised £1,200 to save the stained glass windows at Maria Fidelis Catholic School and install them safely in our new school building.
- Funded on Friday, 12th October 2018
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.
Maria Fidelis Catholic School was established in 1830 by Marie Madelaine D'Houet, Foundress of the order of The Faithful Companions of Jesus (FCJ). Over the last 188 years thousands of pupils have been educated at our school. This is an exciting time in our history as we are about to move into a new school building with outstanding modern facilities. Unfortunately our beautiful old school building will need to be knocked down. We really want to be able to save certain historically important elements so that we don't lose our history. Saving the stained glass window in our library is very important to us. We need a specialist stained glass window expert to painstakingly remove each piece of glass and rebuild the window in our brand new school. This is a very difficult time for schools and funding is limited. We simply don't have the funds from our school budget to pay for this so we are calling on all friends and ex-pupils of Maria Fidelis to please help us by donating funds to save this important piece of our history.
Your donation will be vital to us. Without donations the window will be destroyed when the building is taken down in September 2018. We really appreciate any help you can give us.
Thank you so much!
