Would You Like to Sponsor the Church Floodlighting?

When the floodlighting of All Saints’ Church was installed in 2003 a sponsorship scheme was set up to ensure that funds would always be available for maintenance and the cost of electricity.  The scheme offers a rather nice way of marking special occasions and remembering loved ones, with a ‘certificate’ carrying appropriate wording posted on a notice board in the church porch.  By the end of 2016 the scheme will have raised more than £4600 from over 300 donations, but  the number of sponsors has reduced over the years and we now need to introduce the idea to more people.
