After many years of planning, the refurbishment of the church is now underway. This is great news, and has only been made possible by the hard work and dedication of many people, not least those who have organised and supported fundraising events.
We now have a new way to contribute to the £150,000 we still need to raise to pay for the renovation works. It doesn't cost you a penny, and takes almost no time to do.
www.easyfundraising.org.uk is a website which can help charities and good causes through your regular online shopping. For each purchase you make from retailers who are linked to by www.easyfundraising.org.uk, a percentage of the purchase cost, or in some cases a fixed amount, will be donated to a charity or organisation of your choice.
You are now able to register with www.easyfundraising.org.uk and choose 'Church of Our Lady - Westminster Diocese' as your nominated charity/organisation. Then, each time you shop online, if you reach your normal site by first going through www.easyfundraising.org.uk, our renovation appeal will be one step closer to its target - all without costing you any extra money.
Visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk/register to get started. For more information on how to use the scheme, have a look at http://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/using_this_site, or for the background on how the system works, try www.easyfundraising.org.uk/how_it_works.
Thank you for your continued and much valued support of the parish and the restoration appeal.
