Swing the Bridge collection through GIVEY.com

We’ve been asked why our Swing-the-Bridge page on Givey.com is showing only £10,000 as our target – when in fact the total target £125k! That’s because we thought that people would like to give online (including Gift Aid if possible) and the £10k challenge was achievable for people giving small amounts, or little and often.

Of course, we are also fundraising with Events, approaching Trusts and Organisations, and other Major Donors, to reach the big total. Progress so far is excellent, with widespread support, £40,000 in cash received and a further £30,000 in pledges. That leaves just £55,000 to go!

So Please help us today! Don’t leave it for later…. go to http://www.givey.com/swingthebridge  – and thank you! Every single pound and penny counts!

THE STORY OF FAVERSHAM CREEK  IN TEN OBJECTS

BY DR PAT REID

THURSDAY 21 MAY 2015 at 7 for 7.30 pm
The Fleur Hall, Gatefield Lane

Faversham has a very long and fascinating history. This is a special year for our town, with the Magna Carta 800 celebrations.

Our history stretches back centuries before the Magna Carta, as well as centuries after it. Our town was first settled around the Creek, and our maritime heritage is still a significant influence on the whole town.

Join us for a swift journey through time, as Dr Pat Reid shows us ten objects which tell something important about the story of Faversham Creek.

Whilst Admission is free – and Refreshments are available, we rely on donations to cover the cost of the hall and refreshments. as well as raise some funds for the Trust.

At present, as you may know, we are raising funds for the balance of the outstanding capital required to ensure that the replacement Bridge will be an OPENING BRIDGE.
