In these difficult financial times, we are anxious to maintain our annual Pilgrimage. Until recently, a legacy, which our benefactor wanted us to spend, rather than invest, kept our cash-flow positive, but we now face a substantial deficit.
Our three sources of income are under stress: income from investments, about 45% of our total, has been hit by the credit crisis; annual donations, about 25% of our income, are increasingly difficult to raise; and standing orders, at just 30% of our income, are significantly lower than those of similar trusts.
Please help to secure the future of our annual pilgrimage with a one-off or regular donation, large or small. 10 new standing orders of just £20 a month each (plus Gift Aid), would add £3,000 to our annual income. A tremendous boost!
