    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.

    Story

    In the early hours of Saturday 30th September, our church, St Mary's Catholic Church, High Green, was broken into again. The assailants smashed one of the stained glass windows on the side of the church to gain access, went through the church, ransacking the narthex at the back of church, and after going onto the altar, smashed a further window to gain access to the office which was also ransacked. Only 2 weeks ago, the three stained glass memorial plates were needlessly smashed. The reasons why these attacks have happened is not yet clear, but the police are investigating. Repairs are going to be costly, especially as specialists will be needed to replace the stained glass, and to make good the memorial plates. We also need to raise funds to protect the windows and to upgrade the security of the church to protect it from further attacks. This is not just an attack on our church, but on the very heart of the High Green Community. We are asking if anyone can make a donation, no matter how small to help repair the damage.
