Weʼve raised £0 to help fund a new and exciting community annexe within the historic and beautiful St Mary's Church on Hayling Island.

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.

St Mary’s Hayling is a beautiful medieval church with a contemporary social outlook in the geographical and spiritual heart of Hayling Island. Approximately 7000 people come through our doors each year. Our impact on the community is one of transformative presence: Hayling’s collective history and people’s personal histories are literally embedded in the walls and the grounds. We are trusted, and being an island community, our care for the people here runs very deep.
We are currently fundraising for an annexe at the North side of the church, which would include 4 toilets, one of which would be suitable for disabled access and baby changing, a kitchenette, storage space and a meeting room that can be accessed from outside the church and could be used by the community. The advantages of this would be:
Toilets for use of people visiting the church and graveyard.
Enhanced facilities for music and the arts for the whole community.
Enhanced access to educational resources including the historical heritage of the church.
Enhanced facilities to help people trace family graves.
Facilities to enable us better to maintain the grounds and engage creatively with the ecology and public use of the graveyard
The means to hire out whole church space for appropriate commercial use, enabling us vastly to improve our long term viability.

We have now raised over half of the money needed to build the Annexe at St Mary's Church and we are so close to achieving what some thought they may not see in their lifetime ! We can't offer enough thanks to those who have already contributed towards this worthy cause but we must keep going ! We have a target to reach our final amount and achieve the build of this historic addition to our church by 2019 - we welcome all contributions, however small, please spread the word and share this page - we THANK YOU for helping make this possible !
