Planning your Fund Raising Event 


We encourage groups and individuals to organise fund raising events. Here is how to go about it:

1     Please look at the events which have already been booked and choose a date which does not clash with another fund raising event. It is better to spread these out over the next two years to maximise interest and people's generosity. Planning ahead is also advised as the halls get booked for other events well ahead. You can also see what other regular events are going on in the parish by looking at the events calendar on the website.

who will advise you of any other similar events which are being planned. Alison will check the availability of venues for your event and make a provisional booking.

4     Use the weekly newsletter, Edgeways and emails to advertise your event. Contact Chris Woodward at if you wish to send out a parish-wide email.

5     Ensure you maximise the use of gift-aid by having a supply of the special appeal envelopes; these are available in the parish office. There are rules about what qualifies for Gift Aid, please read them carefully, click here.
