Make a donation
Take your place in the Church of St Mary Magdalene Huntshaw story by helping to give the oldest building in the village a future as a place of worship and as a valuable heritage asset. Our church is 700 years old but without on-going care, we will lose it. We are relying on your generosity to ensure that as many people as possible enjoy the church and the churchyard for many years to come.
How your donations can help
£10 Would fund basic requirements such as cleaning materials
£25 Would fund highly skilled craftsmanship for an hour. (The age of our church means that special skills are needed to preserve certain features)
£50 Would fund a session of grass cutting in the church yard
£100 Would fund annual maintenance of guttering and drainage channels
Gift in Wills
Supporting with a gift in your Will helps to ensure that generations to come can enjoy our church just as much as you do today.
