St. Thomas of Canterbury Church, Goring UK
Music is the Voice of the Soul
Prior to the scheduled 2020 birthday celebration for George,
St. Thomas of Canterbury Church in Goring reached out to George’s community of Lovelies and asked if they would help raise funds to restore the church’s organ.
GMLP responded to church officials and presented them with several ways in which we could help them while celebrating George’s birthday and his charity of hope.
GMLP was scheduled to be in Goring June 27 - 28 to share items it created specifically for the celebration, with 100% of sales being donated. So St. Thomas would receive 1/3 of those sales.
We know George loved his home and time in Goring. We feel assisting the Church with their restoration project is a way to honor him and his love for a place of peace and calm.
We all know the world stepped in and added a pause, which totally impacted our plans for fundraising. GMLP regrouped and informed the church it would honor our commitment despite the added layer of a global pandemic.
Items created for the celebration would now be sold at 100% donation on our website for 3 charities.
A Tally Raffle announced 8/31 will finish fundraising for George’s 2020 birthday celebration.
Funds from this raffle will be added to other monies raised and a total tally will be announced on 9/15.
In a happy new collaboration GMLP is joining forces with the Lovely Nikki Bateman and Barbara’s Antiques & Bric A Brac Shop in Goring.
Items from the US will be displayed in this shop upon its own shelf. 100% of the sales of items will be donated to St. Thomas.
We are so thrilled to share our love for George with Lovelies in the UK. Note, no shipping will be available from the shop, cash and carry sales only.
