FRIENDS OF ST GEORGE'S

The Friends of St. George's was set up in 1992 with the objective of creatring an endowmwnt fund, the interest from which would be used to help towards meeting the cost of repairs to the church.

 

The constitution stipulates that the interest may be used only for the restoration, preservation, repair, improvemt and upkeep of the church.

 

Interest comes from investment of the endowment capital.  Other funds come from donations and fund raising events.
