The charity, “The Friends of Kimble Churches”, was set up in 1996 and is independent in financial terms from the Parochial Church Council (PCC). The Friends raise money to keep the two churches, St Nicholas, Great Kimble and All Saints, Little Kimble, in good repair. The priority accorded to the various aspects of the work required is a matter for the PCC. The Friends make grants to the PCC towards the cost of the work in accordance with the “Objects of the Society” as set out in paragraph 2 of the Rules.
Since 1996 The Friends have raised over £50,000 and currently has about 130 subscribers. Subscriptions may take the form of periodic cash donations or regular donations which may be paid by Banker’s Order. Almost all donations are eligible for Gift Aid
