GIVING TUESDAY ~ 1st December 2020

We are very grateful for all the wonderful support of our regular givers at St Katharine’s church during 2020, but there is no denying it has been a difficult year for those of us with responsibility for balancing the books.

We had to cancel our Christmas Fair, Last Night at the Proms, and Scarecrow Festival weekend events, and these provide the precious fundraising opportunities which help pay our bills. The proceeds from the Christmas Fair traditionally pay for our insurance premium and this, and other bills, must still be paid even though we have been forced to close our doors.

On Giving Tuesday, 1st December, could you help St Katharine’s by donating the price of something which you might have bought during the year like a raffle ticket, a Gaelic coffee, or visit to Father Christmas at the Christmas Fair? Anything you give will help us so much as we come to the end of our financial year. You can send donations to church or donate online at:
