Support St Laurence Church

St Laurence Church, PittingtonWe have been entrusted with a beautiful and historic building, and we are raising money to repair clerestorey windows and surrounding stonework, the organ and surrounding wall. We need about £50,000 to cover all the work needed, and we’ve continued raising money through:

Posh nosh

Every so often, a team of willing chefs get together at Belmont Parish Hall and produce a wonderful meal. The event is now called “Come Dine With Us” and raises up to £600.00 a night after costs. As well as enjoying fantastic food, it’s also great fun. There is no charge, but everyone can make their own donation. Remember wine is included!

August Cream Teas

These have been a huge success and raised about £400.00 this summer.

Sponsored walks and bike rides

A few brave people have cycled or walked miles to help us raise money for the building fund. If you are interested in doing something like this to help us out, we’d be very grateful. All you need to do is contact our Treasurer before or after the event.

Numbers draw

For many years parishioners have regularly contributed to the numbers draw. This has raised hundreds of pounds for the church. Numbers cost £1 per month and there are 3 prizes each month of at least £50.00, £20.00 & £10.00, dependant on the number of participants. Read more…
