We are delighted to have been awarded a grant of £5,000 from the Headley Trust, towards the major repairs to the tower fabric including timber and masonry
repair, reopening of sealed windows and repair of the roof. With recent income from events and donations, this takes us to over £62,000 raised so far toward our target.
Many thanks to Michael Hartnall for his extremely
entertaining and informative talk on Wagner, Hitler and the Jews on 10 November. It was a highly professional presentation using still
images, film and high quality sound. We were privileged to have
such a knowledgeable speaker help us with our ACTnow–Amberley Church Tower
A huge thanks also to Lillis and David Lyon for providing,
serving and butlering a delicious supper afterwards.
£780 was raised for our appeal, so again thanks to everyone
who supported us.
We are delighted to announce the award of a grant for £10,000 from the Sussex Historic Churches Trust towards the cost of the work to be done on St Michael's. With the money raised by our fundraising events and the first part of our Heritage Lottery Fund award, we have now raised over £54,000 towards our total.
St Michael's has participated in the Sussex Historic Churches Fund "Ride & Stride" event for many years. The funds raised from this event are split 50:50 between the Trust and the church, providing another welcome source of income. We thank James Tolson for continuing to organise this event, and the participants from the village.
