    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    The clock situated in the tower of St. Luke’s Church in West Norwood is of national historic significance. Made in 1827 by the famous clockmaker BL Vulliamy it is the earliest example of a flatbed turret clock movement in England.

    If you live in West Norwood you will know that hasn't told the time in a long time! Over the past nearly 200 years it has finally reached the point of needing a thorough overhaul to make it work reliably and also return it to its former glory.

    Along with restoring a historically significant clock and making it function well we also hope to make the clock accessible for study and observation via a website, including a webcam that will show the clock working in real time.

    This project is a partnership between St Luke's Church, Clockworks in West Norwood and Norwood Action Group.

    Thank you for your donations. The project total is £35,000. To date we have received funds totalling almost £22,000 from the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, Antiquarian Horological Society, Golden Bottle Trust, Norwood Forum and many generous private donors. We have also been promised a further £4500 from the Church Buildings Council and Norwood Action Group, bringing our current total to just over £26,000.
