~ APPEAL ~ It costs around £100,000 a year to maintain Holy Trinity & St Nicholas and we desperately need to do more. Our congregations provided just under £48,000 last year through Regular Planned Giving, which was boosted by Gift-Aiding (ie Tax Refund) to around £59,500.

This leaves a serious shortfall to be made up from fund raising, lettings, etc. . and we are really struggling to meet our commitments.
