The Benson Window Appeal

Episode 03 of Radio Tilling will shortly be posted online (watch the RSS feed on the side or check out iTunes or other podcast services soon!) and in it I take a look at the Benson Windows in St. Mary's Church, Rye and at the fundraising effors currently being made to save them from weather damage!
In the episode I mention some links and forms which you can use if you would like to help with the appeal; the E.F.Benson Society link mentioned is here; the Friends of St. Mary's form can be downloaded here (requires Adobe Acrobat) .
Please do consider contributing to this exceedingly good cause - hopefully the windows can be save for future generations, and you will be, in some way, imitating Lucia or, as Mrs Mapp-Flint nicknamed her, "Lady Bountiful"!
