The Friends of St. George's

The group was founded in 1992 with money raised by the members going to finance an endowment fund, the interest from which is used to maintain the fabric of the church and churchyard.

 

Various fund raising events are held through the year with the Quiz evenings proving particularly popular.

 

Other events include talks by well known historians. Details of events can be found on the 'What's On' at www.brede.org.uk 

 

Over the years the Friends have contributed to repairs to the roof, floor, heating and bell ropes as well as pathways in the churchyard.

 

Anyone may join and there is no set "membership fee" with all contributions being left to the discretion of the member.  If you are a tax payer donations can be made through "Gift Aid" which increases the value of all donations by 25%.

 

The Friends would welcome new members and look to new members to give new ideas of how funds can be raised.
