FUNDRAISING

WE’RE STILL LOOKING!

We are looking for a replacement to lead our Fund Raising Committee as Matt Austen leaves St James to train for the priesthood.

Do you think this is something you may able to do?

Have you got fresh ideas?

Are you enthusiastic and committed to raising much needed funds for the restoration of our beautiful building?

If the answers are ‘YES’ we would love to hear from you.
