A very pleasant and successful evening was held in the Great Hall, Berkeley Castle to launch the Bell-tower Appeal. Approximately 80 guests gathered and were welcomed over wine and canapes by appeal patrons Mr John Berkeley and Lord Cope of Berkeley who officially launched the appeal to fund the restoration of the Berkeley Bell Tower.
The assembled guests then heard an informative talk by Steven Chandler, Chairman of the Appeal Committee, who explained the work required to the bells and the tower itself.
The appeal was well supported and our first £4,000 was raised. Guests were invited to share ideas for further fundraising opportunities to help us achieve our overall target of £120,000.
