Donating to the Memorial Hall

As we start to use the new building from April 2016, we know that there are still a few internal items that we have not been able to afford and which will make the hall more comfortable and usable. If you feel that you can donate to this project, please contact us. This can be in the form of a financial pledge, a donation or a regular contribution. If you are a UK tax payer, the donation can be ‘Gift Aided’.

If you would like to make a donation or pledge, please contact the Memorial Hall Secretary in confidence:[contact_form]
