Repair Funding Appeal - The Final Push
An appeal is made for funding for repair to this Church built in 1867 by the 1820 Settlers and their descendants. We have tackled many projects in 2016 and up to March 2017. We are now faced with the last couple of tasks, The Final Push, which will cost R30,0000.
These are :
- Painting of the exterior
- Repairs to the graves and graveyard
- Clearing of encroaching bush on the perimeter fencing
- Eradication of wattle and thorn bush infestation on the Common
- Repair and sealing of the window frames
The Clumber Church reaches out to the general public requesting financial assistance in undertaking these repairs as they are not able to bear the financial burden on their own. We also appeal to those 1820 Settler families whose roots emanates from this region to consider assistance. All assistance , both great and small, will be hugely appreciated.
We also ask that you kindly spread this Funding Request through your own individual Social Networks to distribute this Appeal worldwide. Without this form of assistance we most certainly will not be able to meet our commitment to maintain this historical building to the level which it so rightly deserves.
This website has been originated to put on display the rich history not only of this building, but of those British Settler families who made this corner of South Africa their new home. And how this Church and its two predecessors were inextricably interwoven in the fabric of their lives. We acknowledge their stoic determination, from humble beginnings, to leave a lasting legacy for the future generations.
