Extension: the story so far
What we need
We have recently received more grants, promises and donations.
We now need just over £8,000.
30 September 2019 - update
Many applications have been made to funding bodies. Burton Hastings PCC’s application to the Tesco Bags of Help Grant Scheme was successful. Following an application just before last Christmas, the PCC received a wonderful gift from the Garfield Weston Foundation, a family-founded grant making Trust. Since then we have been successful in receiving positive responses from Beatrice Laing Trust, Laslett’s Charities and Allchurches Trust and this month from Bernard Sunley Foundation and the Diocese of Coventry 's Church Improvements Fund. We’ve also received many generous donations, promises and legacies from local people.
In January 2019, based on estimates, we were nearly in reach of our extension target. Shortly after, we decided to go to tender. However, we have been disappointed as the figures that we received were much higher than anticipated.
We continue to apply to grant holders and relevant charities for funds; recently two more have been sent.
