2019 Appeal Feedback
The latest update is that we will increase our regular giving in 2019 by £50,000 and this will rise to £70,000 in 2020. Our ambitious target was £102,000 and thus leaves a shortfall of £32,000, we will therefore adjust our finances accordingly. The project giving achieved £127,000 of the £285,000 we wish to raise over 3 years. Thank you for your generosity and deo gratis. If you did not hear the feedback on the 27/28 July at Mass please go to the CPG website to see the full feedback.
