Filby Bells Restoration

On 18th Feb. Filby Bells Resoration was registered with the Charity Commission as a C.I.O., Registered Charity Number 1188037. This is an ambitious project which we hope will inspire support. The vision of the Committee of Trustees is to restore the Church’s bells to full working condition in 2020. This will be achieved at an approximate cost of £120,000, this sum to be obtained by local fundraising supported by applications to appropriate grant bodies. Donations may be made to A/C  Filby Bells Restoration, Sort code: 20-17-20, Account number: 00929441. Donations can, also, be made on-line at JustGiving. The Charity's launch event, a 'Wine and Cheese Evening' that was to be held on Friday 24th April at All Saints Church, Filby, has been postponed as a result of Covid-19 restrictions.
