Friends New Member Application

THE FRIENDS OF ST MICHAEL’S, BRAY (Registered Charity No. 1070040) 
 
The Friends was formed as a Registered Charity in 1998 by a group of members of the Bray congregation wishing to generate funds for the benefit of St Michael’s in order to provide “extras” that were beyond the scope of, or in addition to, the normal expenditure of the PCC on routine running costs, maintenance etc.   The PCC’s normal income comes  primarily from the collections at services and other regular giving, donations and legacies but that is rarely sufficient to cover more than the essential expenses. 
 
Over recent years the additional funds from the Friends have provided a wide range of items ranging from hymn and prayer books, kneelers, cushions, carpeting, a storage shed, tents for functions, contributions to various Music at Bray concerts and the piano as well as conservation of memorials, tables and other equipment for the hall, the portable font, a lectern and Bible, the Altar Frontal etc. In addition, since 2008, The Friends and a Fund Raising Committee of the PCC have raised over £320,000 towards the substantial costs of repairs to several of the stained glass windows, the tower, the north-west corner wall and the new organ.   Further work will be required on windows in the future but the most recent project was complete replacement of the toilets behind the Hall as these were generally below what one might expect and were not disabled accessible. 
 
By joining The Friends of St Michael’s you will help to continue making a meaningful contribution to the preservation and improvement of this most historic building.   
 
You may join with an annual payment by standing order - there is no fixed annual membership fee but we suggest £25 per person (more if you wish and are able) or alternatively a one-off  “lifetime membership” payment can be made.   If you wish to set up a standing order payment by other means such as Internet Banking please do so but it will help if you will partially complete the form to indicate the amount and date of the subscription but mark the form clearly that it has already been implemented. 
 
Please note the form includes a Gift Aid Declaration as this adds 25% to your contribution at no cost or formality to yourself and if you are a higher rate taxpayer you may be able to obtain higher rate relief on your contribution.   If you are not a taxpayer please delete that paragraph. 
 
When completed please send the whole form to:- Friends of St Michael’s Bray, c/o Sarah Pallot, Bramblings, Secretary of  The Friends of St.      Michael’s Bray, Bartletts Lane, Holyport, Berkshire, SL6 2NB or leave, in an envelope, on the shelf at the back of the Church (below the Churchwardens ’names board’). 
 
If you have any questions or require further information please do not hesitate to telephone  Lynda Jones (Chair) on 01628 635178, or Sarah Pallot (Secretary) on 01628 622716.
