New Method of Giving During the Lockdown
There have been several requests for suggestions of how to make donations to the church during the lockdown.
The Parish Giving Scheme (PGS) is an organisation which receives regular giving on our behalf and then passes it on to us, including the Gift Aid on behalf of taxpayers if appropriate. The majority of our regular givers use this method.
The PGS has just informed us that it has now set up a new telephone service to accept monthly payments from people, e.g. envelope users, who are currently unable to use their envelopes by handing them in during services.
Anyone interested in finding out more, and perhaps in following it up, should call the PGS on 0333 002 1271. If you decide to make use of the service, you will need to have the following information at hand:
- Your personal bank details
- Our parish name: “Quarrington”
- Be able to tell them whether or not you pay tax
- Tell them our parish code: 210 621 235
Please do not hesitate to contact David Pursell by e-mail at to get information or advice about any aspect of our giving.
We have also set up a JustGiving page for raising money to get our chimes going again. We have actually raised enough to do this, but have kept the page open so you can still give if you wish. The money will be used for the continuing maintenance of the church. The link is below
St Botolph's also runs a 50/50 club. For £12 per year, you are entered into 12 draws per year (i.e. monthly) with the chance of winning prizes of £20 first prize and £5 second prize.
Everybody is welcome to join, so if you are interested please contact us on
