Regular Giving to Sunningwell

Thank you to all those who have increased their giving or given a one off gift in the past few weeks. These gifts will help reduce the projected deficit but we still have some way to go to breakeven this year. If a few more people could increase their giving it would make a big difference to minimising the deficit this year. If you have not already had chance to revise your giving and would like more information about giving please contact Karen on 01865 730759 or e- mail
