Giving to Grow Gift Day Update

This year we are having a series of "Giving to Grow" gift days, aiming to raise £310,000 by September to allow us to finish paying for our reception redesign, launch our new Sandhurst site, make improvements to the Bracknell site, buy a house from Bracknell and Wokingham College and tithe on the income. You can find more detail on all this here.

Through to September we are having a gift day on the first Sunday of every month. We had the first of those at the beginning of March, which raised £21,100. We also received an earlier gift towards paying for the reception of £12,500. That makes a total so far of £33,600, which is such a great start. A huge thank you to everyone who gave, it is so appreciated and will make such a difference to what we can do as a community. All that makes the total we now have left to raise a mere £276,400.

The next gift day is on Sunday 7th April. Please be thinking about what you're going to give, although if you meant to give this time round and haven't yet had a chance it's not too late. You can either put your gift in an offering envelope, write "Gift Day" on it and put it in the regular Sunday offering, or you can give online here.

Thanks again to everyone who gave - be assured that you will reap what you've sown.
