Weʼre raising £60,000 to help fund overhaul and tuning of the bells at St Gregory's Church Sudbury, Suffolk
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
It's more than 100 years since the 8 bells at St Gregory's Church had a professional overhaul. In the interim, Suffolk Guild members worked on the bells, and put the 7th and the tenor on ball bearings, these fittings are now wearing badly, along with the fittings on the other 6 bells and all are becoming difficult to ring. The parishioners are always pleased to hear the bells ring for Sunday Services, and so the bell ringers are keen to have the bells overhauled without causing financial problems for the parish.
