We were very encouraged by the initial responses to the Vision pledge during Quarter 1. However, in Quarter 2 to date, we have seen a signiﬁcant drop in the number of pledges being fulﬁlled and we are now likely to fall short of our £42k target. If you have not yet redeemed your pledge and need help to do this, or if you wish to start giving regularly to the work at St George’s, then please contact Dave Sankey or Janet Gibson.
