£365raised of £1,500 target by 10 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to help fund the refurbishment of the six clappers for St John's bells.

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.


St John's ring of six bells was cast and installed in October 1843 (yes, they're 175 years old!). The bells sound when an iron clapper, suspended inside the bell, strikes the side of the bell. This wears the clapper surface over time, and they eventually need refurbishing. The clappers also need to have new bushes made and fitted, so that there is no play in the mechanism.
