ROOF’US FUND: WONDERFUL NEWS
We have some wonderful news for you. Our target of £25,000 has been reached. Now £25,152.90) It is all thanks to your generous support by way of your donations of money, giving time to bake on coffee mornings, buying the Roof’us slates, doing the weekly Numbers Up game buying tickets for and donating prizes to the raffles. Special thanks to the fund-raising team for all their hard work, effort and enthusiasm.
We still, of course, need you to continue in this way, as in addition to what we previously intended doing, we have had to add extensive floor repairs, stone work and stain glass window refurbishment, full decorating throughout, improving disabled access, the WC and new kitchen facilities, new heating system… Yes, it does seem like an endless task, but it is a very worthwhile cause and our duty to restore and maintain such a beautiful church building for future generations to come.
We also have to prove to the grant awarding bodies, as well as to the Diocese, that we are active parishioners and care enough to raise our share of the upkeep costs.
So today we need to give ourselves a well-deserved pat on the back to have reached this first milestone, then, we need to step forward together again in support of this worthy cause.
Thank you all again and God bless you all.
If anyone wishes to make a cheque donation towards our refurbishment please make it payable to: The Sacred Heart Refurbishment Fund. Thank you.

At Sacred Heart there are two boxes at the back of the Church. One is for food items (in cans and packets only please) for the food bank at Trinity Methodist Church, Goole (which is in urgent need of constant replenishing). The other box is for woolly hats for the apostleship of the sea to give to those who work at sea. Many thanks to parishioners in Goole who very kindly knitted the most recent donations. Patterns for hats are available at the back of the church.
