Story

Van Appeal - Give us the tools and we'll carve out our own future

The Guild of St Stephen & St George are training a new generation to become stonemasons. We don't receive any external funding and will only survive through our own enterprise. Lots of people are giving their time and skills freely in order to help pass on the craft skills and culture which has existed continuously for nearly 1,000 years. The purchase of a van would enable us to radically cut the cost of sourcing stone; it would allow us to take on more work in order to finance our apprentices' journey. Finally, we would be able to take our apprentices on educational site visits.
