An important word about Donations

St Michael’s finances have taken a significant hit during the current crisis.  As a result of the stringent restrictions that have been in place since mid-March, we have lost several major income streams including our weekly plate collections and hall rental income, and have also been unable to run any of the major fundraising events which normally happen at this time of year.  Although we have reduced our expenditure as far as possible, we have many fixed costs and bills to pay, and this year we will inevitably spend far more than we bring in.  We recognise that this is a difficult time for all of us, and that many people are facing financial challenges in their own lives too, but if you are in a position to make a donation – however small we would be extremely grateful.  You can do this instantly by scanning the QR code below using your smartphone, or by simply clicking on the link.  This will take you to our donations website, which also allows you to Gift Aid your donation if you are a taxpayer.  Many thanks.
