Let’s firstly think about where the money we need comes from…..
£24,847 comes from offerings and donations, £4,617 from tax recovered under Gift Aid, £3,900 from fund-raising and investment income on reserves built up from giving. So the money comes from us.
Costs are rising because inflation does not go away:
Inflation (RPI) since 2007 has increased prices by nearly 20%: giving of £240 now buys no more than giving of £200 in 2007.
