£300raised of £10,000 target by 11 supporters

Weʼre raising £10,000 to Renovate the World War 1 Memorial Chapel at St Mark's Church, Farnborough ready for November 2018

Farnborough, Hampshire, United Kingdom

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.


We have a unique World War I Memorial Chapel which commemorates the names of 190 men and women who died in the service of their country. It is unique because we have the first memorial to the Royal Flying Corps which became the RAF. The Chapel needs the names repainted and the restoration of some of the panels. In order to raise money we are holding a Jane Austen Readathon between December 11th and 16th. One book is being read a day and we are asking people to sponsor us a Jenner (a Jane Austen £10). One of those named in our Chapel is Richard Brodnax Knight a direct descendant of Jane Austen's brother.
