BRF Fundraising Committee
The BRF Fundraising Committee complements and assists the Guild's districts with fund-raising initiatives in aid of the Bell Restoration Fund, which provides grants to churches for bell restoration or augmentation. The Committee can also help and advise those trying to raise funds for their own bell project within the Diocese of Leicester.
The Committee has put together a list of funding sources for a BRF project, with useful information and links.
If you would like more information on the ideas in the funding sources document, or any other aspect regarding the generation of funds for a BRF project, please contact the committee chairman, Mark Pendery, at brf @ leicesterdg.org.uk
