Holy Trinity Floodlighting Sponsorship

Since 2000, Holy Trinity Church has been floodlit during the hours of darkness. This lighting can be ‘sponsored’ by emailing/phoning the Parish Office and agreeing how to forward a donation of £10 for a week’s floodlighting. A note will then appear in that week’s Notice Sheet (or sponsorship can be anonymous if preferred). Notes from sponsors can celebrate a birth, marriage or other milestones. Quite often, sponsorship is in memory of an anniversary of death. As space is limited, please provide as much notice as possible to avoid disappointment.

COVID Emergency Fund

In response to a growing awareness of families and individuals in crisis due to the Covid pandemic, parishioners created a special Fund to provide relief to those particularly hard-hit. Money continues to be donated and given to three chosen projects:

  • Citizens Advice Fareham supports clients in rent arrears due to Covid. 
  • The Roberts Centre in Portsmouth helps families needing support. 
  • A community project in Easington Co. Durham is creating a community support hub and food bank. 

The original aim was to raise £10,000. This target was soon exceeded and funds continue to be passed to these three projects, making a direct difference. To make a donation, please contact our Treasurer on treasurer@htscf.org.uk

Gift Aid

For many years, UK tax payers have been able to make donations (one-off and regular giving) with added Gift Aid – 25% automatically being added by HMRC. Please give with a Gift Aid Declaration if you are eligible to do so.  You can find the Gift Aid Form here. You will then need to send it to our Gift Aid Coordinator, Rowena Palmer via giftaid@htscf.org.uk

Last but not least, donations can be handed into our Parish Office. Please put cash or cheque made payable to “PCC Holy Trinity Church” – in an envelope marked “Treasurer – donation”.
