Weʼre raising £1,000 to help fund the Heating Project at St Kevin's 'beautiful' Church in the small village of Bargeddie, between Glasgow and Coatbridge
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
To complete our Heating Project we require additional funding. We have already secured around £50,000 from a successful Grant Application, of which we raised 10% as a voluntary contribution to receive the Grant. The Project consists of badly needed new boilers, radiators and insulation and now the final fundraising is to cover the cost of the necessary installation of electrics to operate the system effectively and efficiently. The Church, since 1948, has been a very cold building which present and past generations of people have endured as they worshipped. Now the Church will eb a comfortable environment and place to pray and gather. As we still need additional finance to complete these essential works, i n August 2018 I am challenging myself to cycle the Hebridean Way from Vatersay to The Butt of Lewis, a journey of 185 miles, to support St Kevin's Parish and its parishioners and help raise more funds. I am hoping people will know the value of supporting me as I endure this task for the people of St Kevin's and help secure for future generations a warm Church for our community and visitors. I am grateful to you for any financial assistance you can offer.
