Read in Peace Seat Appeal

The Big Give Christmas Challenge 2019Please support our Christmas Challenge and Read In Peace!

We have an exciting opportunity to install a beautiful R.I.P. (‘Read In Peace’) seat in the Cemetery, which will encircle a Liquidambar tree and have an integrated book shelf, complete with books in it!

To fund this, we’ve been selected to take part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge and have secured pledges from key supporters and a matching offer from a Big Give champion – The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

When you donate, what you give will be doubled in value – your £50 becoming £100, your £20 becoming £40, your £10, £20. There’s never been a better time to show your support and make a difference – one donation, twice the impact!

The seat will be a focus for quiet reading for all ages and storytelling for children. It will be a magical spot for the books to lead everyone to explore, beyond the bustle of the town and the hum of the computer. Please help us install this seat.

The Challenge launches in:

Donations must be made online between midday on Tuesday 3rd December and midday on Tuesday 10th December in order to be doubled.  On 3rd December go to The Big Give website and choose The Friends of St Peter’s Great Berkhamsted.
