Story

We have raised the bar on this crowdfunder! New target: £50K

We initially set the target figure at £25K. In two weeks we’ve been overwhelmed by people’s response. What has been donated really will help, but Letton are not ‘out of the woods’ financially, even with all we have raised.

The Letton team have the challenge of rebuilding their bookings in 2021. This will not be easy and will take time. Income will not flood back in straight away at the same rate. Even with the amount raised so far they still face a huge challenge next year.

So for that reason - I’m upping the target to £50,000 and asking you all to continue to pray, to share and spread the word especially to people, churches, groups who have been to Letton Hall.

They will need everything we can raise and more to help them in what is still an unknown future.

So, yes I’ve set the figure higher! I have no vested interest bar my love for this place! Let’s see if we can do this - I believe we can!

ORIGINAL FUNDRAISING STORY:

Letton Hall in Norfolk is a place that means so much to me. I've had such a connection with this place over the years, there's no place I would rather bring people to meet with God.

Letton has had no income during lockdown. With the end of the furlough scheme, and continued restrictions on gatherings, they are in a very difficult position.

At the end of October they will make the vast majority of their staff redundant and will keep a very small team to see if they can continue until the situation improves.

If nothing changes at some point in the early part of 2021 Letton could close on a permanent basis.

The team at Letton are doing everything they can to save the business – they have explored government guidance and applied for the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage grants to no avail. They will close unless other sources of support become available.

Many of you reading this will have a personal connection with Letton, it’s part of your story as it is mine. Please will you join me by giving, sharing this, and telling others about their situation. We can do something to secure Letton as a place for future generations to be impacted for Jesus. Please give generously!

    I wanted to share an update on the progress of this crowdfunder. Letton Hall and myself are so grateful for everyone’s giving and are now so close to the £50,000 target. We have currently raised nearly £32k through the crowdfunder page, but also another £11,250 directly given to Letton Hall, making a current total of £43,107! I really believe the target of £50,000 is now within reach! Thanks again for your support, prayers & for sharing with others, Letton Hall’s need. Let's keep going in this final lap of the race! Together we can do this!

    Letton staff & Trustees thank all who've donated to help keep us open. With the amount raised we're keeping on three staff we expected to lose & can fix an issue with water entering the building above the stairs. Your support goes a long way toward ensuring we can keep running until we are able to open up fully!  As encouraging as the donations are the many comments of how Letton Hall and events here have profoundly affected your faith and lives. We want that to continue into the future. We thank God for you and his provision for Letton Hall.
