raised of £20,000 target by 4 supporters

    Weʼve raised £180 to fund repairs to the church roof and porch.

    Chickerell, Weymouth, UK
    Funded on Friday, 31st July 2020

    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.


    Our Village church is in need of help. Repairs are needed to the roof to prevent rains from getting into the church and causing more costly damage.

    The present church dates from about 1260, although there has been a church on this site since Saxon times.


    1. WHAT HAPPENS TO THE MONEY DONATED HERE? - St Mary's is not a charity, so we have had to set up a crowdfunding page. The money raised here will be paid to me (John Bennett) at the end of the fundraising period and I will immediately transfer the funds to the St Mary Restoration Account.

    2. WHAT IF I WISH TO GIFT AID MY DONATION? If you are a UK taxpayer and wish to Gift Aid your donation and we would really appreciate you doing this as it gives us 25% more at no cost to you. Please send a cheque payable to "St Mary's PCC" and write your address on the back so that we can Gift Aid it. Please send it to: St Mary's PCC c/o 11 Randall Close, Chickerell, Weymouth, DT3 4AS.

    3. WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU EXCEED THE TARGET? All funds raised for the church in excess of the target will go into the Restoration fund for the on-going upkeep of the church.

        I hope that the target is reached without too much delay and repairs can go ahead.
