St Saviour’s “Raising the Roof” Appeal

St Saviour’s have launched their fundraising campaign to repair the church hall roof which collapsed last year. While there is a temporary cover in place, unfortunately the hall cannot be used until there is a permanent repair.

The cost of bringing the hall back into use is around £50,000. We have received a small amount of grant funding, but there is still a long way to go, so any donation, however small, will be gratefully received.

You can donate online at www.shepherdandsaviour/st-saviours or by cash in the collecting box at St Saviour’s, or by cheque made payable to “PCC St Saviour’s Shanklin” sent to “The Treasurer, Woodside, Upper Hyde Farm Lane, Shanklin, PO37 7PS
