DONATIONS

When we first began the 'Friends' group, we were very conscious of the fact that we might not succeed and would, perhaps, have to abandon our aim to restore Jesmond Old Cemetery. With this in mind, we were very reluctant to actively encourage any financial donations, just in case we were not able to fulfil people's expectations of us. However, now that we have been going for over five years, have an active group of volunteers who have made remarkable progress and have now attracted over £12,000 in formal funding, we think it is safe to assume that we are a stable and credible organisation who are here to stay!!!

As such, we now see ourselves as a group who are a safe financial 'home' for anyone who wishes to help us out financially. In support of this, we have an account with the HSBC and we operate under strict financial governance as set out in our formal
constitution

If anyone is in a position to support us financially, all donations are greatfully received, no matter how big or small, with all donations being acknowledged via a nice letter from the Secretary. Every penny we receive goes towards the running of the Friends group - no expenses are ever paid to anyone, not even the Secretary, who does a lot of running around on behalf of everyone!!! 

Cheques should be made payable to 'Friends of Jesmond Old Cemetery' and these should be posted to:
