The Orthodox Saint Edward Brotherhood Roofing Fund Appeal

The Brotherhood writes to us:

On Thursday, 20th March/2nd April we issued an appeal for the estimated shortfall in the amount we need to complete the work. The cost of the re-roofing of St. Edward’s church will now be £170,000.

On 8th July New Style, we had a consultation with our contractors, and structural deficiencies have been found in the large wooden trusses that support the roof and a few other areas. These could have been left, but that would incur further works in the future, with more upheaval then and perhaps even greater costs. We have arranged that the remedial work can be undertaken within our present schedule, but unfortunately it will cost us a further £7,500.

Donations received recently - £2,175.42
Given since 2nd April 2009 - £29,258.91*
We now (11th July 2009) need - £25,741.09

*Of this figure, £1,320 is from Interest-Free loans

Please continue to give and support the appeal by your prayers. United Kingdom taxpayers, please gift-aid your donation by including a signed note, with your full name and address, saying you wish the charity to be able to reclaim the tax already paid on it. This enables us to increase your donation by 25%. Please make all cheques payable to: KING EDWARD ORTHODOX TRUST Co. Ltd. U.S. donors paying in dollars, please make cheques (checks!) payable to “Saint Edward Brotherhood”- we will transfer funds from our dollars account to the KEOTCoLtd account, and this will save bankers’ fees.
