Fundraising Appeal launched seeking 20,000 Cornish Pards to save St Just Methodist Chapel
Fundraising Appeal launched seeking 20,000 Cornish Pards to save St Just Methodist Chapel with a rousing hymn to the tune of Trelawney.
Yesterday was a concert date, at St Just Methodist Chapel, arranged as a final event for when the doors of the chapel were supposed to be locked. However, since that announcement, experts in the historic value of the building and ordinary local folk have mounted a campaign to keep it open and find a new sustainable future. So, the concert instead became the start of a new chapter and the words of the adapted hymn tells the challenge.
An ambitious fundraising appeal has been launched seeking 20,000 people (or Pards – used to describe a miners’ workmate) to donate £100 so a £2m campaign target. The appeal aims to go global because when the mines closed in Cornwall, the Cornish workers migrated to work in mines throughout the world.
For those wanting to become one of the 20,000 then email email@example.com and tell them Sue James asked you to get in touch! That way, they’ll know how you heard about the appeal.
