About the 'Friends'
Who we are
The ‘Friends’ is a wholly voluntary organisation with no paid staff. It was established on 23 April 2004 and registered as a Charity on 27 October 2004. The trustees meet in Committee at regular intervals during the year to plan events and discuss ideas for fundraising.
The Friends is managed by a small committee under the leadership of the President, Fr Adrian Hughes. Membership is open to all. If you would like to join us you can find out more on our Join Us page.
What we do
We organise a variety of social and cultural fund-raising events for our members. The profit from these, together with the subscription and donations, is to support a variety of projects that benefit St George’s.
In the years since our formation, the Friends have given the church over £80,000 for restoration and the availability of financial support has greatly helped the Church Council in its decision making especially when emergency repairs have been necessary and funds have not been available.
