  2. Crowdfunding for Lundy

    Lundy Island in the Bristol Channel has, for the last 23 years, been a popular holiday destination for ringers. The church and tower is currently undergoing a major restoration of the roof, tower, clock, windows and insides to make it weather proof and stable for the next 100 years. The £1m project is part funded by the HLF but some essential parts of the scheme fall outside the scope and need funding separately.

    The Ground Source heat pump is planned to keep the building damp free in the future. It is eligible for a grant from M&S Energy of circa £12k if it secures enough popular votes through the poll in the link below. Currently the project is 3rd and behind the leader by 106 votes. The one thing we ringers can do is to use our extensive networks to help ventures like this. This is an invitation to follow this link, go to Projects, Devon and Dorset Region and find Lundy, vote and help get us ahead!
