HOT NEWS – Just been advised that we have had an award of £5,000 from the Arthur Souster Charitable Trust. This Trust promised us £5,000 upon commencement of Building construction which we achieved in the Autumn of 2016.
Really BIG Thanks to the Arthur Souster Charitable Trust!!!
***** Just added some photos to the Gallery – more to come including Plans in next few days – 8th July 2017 *****
The money raised to date is £814,530 – which consists of our own internal fundraising + Trust Funds + the £400,00 CAF Mortgage facility. We now know the bottom line will be £1,992,028. The Architect has had to revalue the project as it has been over 3 years since the prices were put together. Check out the FUNDING page to see more detail on how our fund raising is going. There is also a copy of the Building Project report to the upcoming AGM.

STILL MOVING FORWARD – the Building Project is a bit like the picture of the proverbial swan – serene & quiet on the surface but with furious “paddling” under the water. Lots happening right now, reports to Solicitors, Accountants & Architects, meetings with funders & community groups and a whole host of stuff that needs to be done in order to build up funding application material. Looking forward to becoming a Charity in our own right and separated from the Diocesan references.
Received some very helpful support from Nene Valley Community Action & Support Northamptonshire – it is clear that we have a lot of work to do to prove we are a cause that needs support because there is a “need” in the local community. That’s quite an interesting problem to face as on the surface our local community in Gleneagles is not an obvious area of social need (high crime rate, poverty etc) so funds might not be so easy to apply for.
Of course it’s always possible there might just be someone out there with a couple of £million just waiting to find a really worthwhile cause – you never know!!!
