Costs of maintenance and repairs to an ancient building like All Saints are constant, prohibitive and increasing. The Friends of All Saints Perpetual Fabric Fund (Charity No. 1037103) was set up in 1995 to provide a means for all to help in the care of this wonderful building, and is managed by five trustees. The income is devoted entirely to maintaining the fabric of the building. Since its inception the Friends have raised thousands of pounds to further this end.
If you would like to become a Friend, there is no fixed amount to pay. Every ‘Friend’ decides for himself or herself what he or she can afford. Friends can pay by direct debit through their bank (monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or annually), by cheque, by weekly envelopes (supplied), or on line through btmydonate. Please contact the treasurer Les Yates, 46 Godden Road, Snodland, Kent (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to become a Friend.
All Friends who join the mailing list will receive periodic newsletters updating them on the latest repair and development projects and informing them of any forthcoming events or activities that are being planned.
The Friends have for sale a range of memorabilia, including All Saints mugs, tea towels, pens and guide books. If you are interested in purchasing any, our treasurer Les Yates would be delighted to assist you (contact details above).
