Bell Restoration Fund Treasurer’s Report 2011

The BRF has had another good year. Fundraising has been maintained at 2010 levels, whilst the payment of only one grant (Bishopsgate) has given rise to a surplus in excess of £10,000 at the end of the year.

Fundraising by the North & East district included the barn dance at Bow-in-the-Road (£335) and £97 from the sale of teas for Open House at Aldgate. The Highgate Fair raised £400 and Janets’ and John’s Jaunts £173. The Western District raised £449 through their quiz night and £100 at their ADM.

New grants were awarded to St Mary Kilburn, Foster Lane, Christ the Saviour Ealing and Harmondsworth. The grant awarded to Edgware in 2008 was renewed and supplemented by a donation of £800 from the Girdlers’ Company Charitable Trust.

Many thanks for all the hard work and generosity of fundraisers and donators in 2011 and I look forward to another successful year.
