Supporting and Developing St Edwards
Developing St. Edward’s
Plans to develop St Edwards - the church and the hall - have been progressing for a number of years.
We need to update the facilities and to create more space for larger groups and more bookings. We are now ready to take things forward....
The first step is to improve the heating system and insulation, by adding secondary glazing to the windows.
The second step is to add more toilets (including facilities for those with disabilities) and a proper kitchen.
Once the church building is fit for community use we will upgrade the hall and develop some of the site for housing.
We also continue to develop and expand the activities and services run at the church and hall.
Inevitably both the building improvements and running the projects cost money, so we are fundraising...
Every little helps... and the following are some of the ways that you can contribute, in some cases without even spending anything extra.
1) Easy Fundraising: Do you shop online? If so, log into Easy Fundraising at https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/panel/ Register to use the service and to select St Edwards, Mottingham as your chosen charityAnd you can raise money for St Edwards without spending a penny extra as a lot of online shops donate a small percentage to your chosen charity.
2) Donations via the bank: If you want to donate online - either regularly or a one-off - contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com and we can let you have the Bank details so that you can set up your transfer. If you are a taxpayer we can also send you a Gift Aid form so that we can claim back some tax relief on your donation.

4) Skills Base: In addition to funds, in-kind help, volunteers for projects and trustees are also welcome.

WE ARE ALSO GRATEFUL to the Bernard Sunley Trust and Slaughter and May Charitable Trust, as well as many others who have donated towards our heating replacement.
We await the outcome of bids for secondary glazing work this week.
Laing Family Trust have also given us funds towards the Phase 2 development of Kitchens and Toilets.
