Portico Rescue - Fundraising
Building Work on the Portico and Pillars is finished
We are extremely grateful to the amazing community of Brighton and Hove who have supported us during the restoration of this beautiful building. The work is now complete. This is a massive achievement bearing in mind all the additional work that has been undertaken and is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team of builders we had on site. Thank you everyone.
If you have not already done so, please take a look at the short film, which explains all about our Portico Rescue Appeal and see for yourself the extent of the damage and why we had to ask for help.
As part of our ongoing building appeal many artists and musicians are performing fundraising concerts and we are very grateful to them for their giving their time, energy and talent to help us.
