SDGR Virtual Guild Festival 2021 (LEBRF)

Fundraising for Llewellyn Edwards Bell Restoration Fund (LEBRF)
raised of £250 target
We provide grants to restore church bells to support ringers in the Salisbury Guild


About this Event:

The Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers (SDGR) is holding its ‘Virtual Festival and AGM’ 2021 on Saturday 8 May 2021 and as part of that event it is encouraging donations to raise money for Llewellyn Edwards Bell Restoration Fund (LEBRF) because we want to support this unique heritage art & invest in the future of ringing throughout the Diocese of Salisbury. 

In the evening the Guild Master is hosting ‘An Evening with the Editor of The Ringing World’, Will Bosworth, and you can also make a donation here in appreciation of that event.

About the LEBRF: 

The LEBRF began back in 1956 when the Rev Frank Llewellyn Edwards (Guild Secretary from 1913-1950), died and left £150 in his will to start a Guild Bell Fund for the restoration and augmentation of church bells in the Diocese of Salisbury.  Regular donations from ringers in the Guild helped increase the value of the Fund and in 1976 the first Open Day was organised boosting the Fund to £1600. This then became a popular annual event drawing in visitors from all over the country and an important source of income. 

Over the last 5 years grants of over £50,000 have been made across the Diocese to get bells ringing again and maintain them for future generations to enjoy.

This year, because of Covid-19, the Open Day and other ringing events couldn’t take place, and so we are using online JustGiving events to raise money so that the LEBRF can continue its important work keeping bells in the guild ringing now and in the future.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.
