2020 Emergency Appeal

At the start of the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, an Emergency Appeal was set up. By the autumn its initial target had been reached and the appeal was concluded. Sincere thanks to everyone who helped in this moment of crisis. The text below records the appeal

We find ourselves in unprecedented times and in unchartered waters due to the Covid-19 pandemic; for income to SMLT has taken a major hit. Regular giving income has been falling for some time, a planned Giving Renewal for spring 2020 had to be abandoned, and all the Concerts and the Christmas Tree Festival have been cancelled too this year.
It is therefore with a sense of extreme urgency that the PCC has urged that an emergency appeal must be made to everyone who cares about St Mary-le-Tower, whether they are connected throught the Choir, Concerts, Bell Ringers or Church membership. We are aiming to raise at least £50,000 this year to support the Choral Ministry of the Church, and also to enable the church building to continue to be a living sign of God’s presence in the centre of Ipswich
Please will you make a donation as soon as you are able?
