CLONMELLON, Ireland – BK Partners launched a Kickstarter campaign to restore St. John’s Church in Clonmellon, Ireland to its original glory. The goal is to raise €60,000 by April 15, 2016 to renovate the building and use it to display works of art. This will be a great attraction to the village of Clonmellon and provide much needed cultural and social space the community.
The church was built in 1790. It was used for over 200 years. In the 1990’s, the church was abandoned and eventually went into ruins. BK Partners and MonpascalFoundation are working together to rebuild this precious piece of Clonmellon’s history. The organizations have secured planning permission for the project from County Council and identified builders specialized in restoration work. For every dollar raised from the campaign, Monpascal Foundation will match the donation.
Funds received will go towards external and internal re-plastering with traditional lime plaster, flooring with reclaimed planks, and mending doors and windows. The abandoned garden on the church grounds will also be restored.
Click here to make a contribution and help the campaign. Backers can choose from a number of attractive rewards and become Patrons of St. John’s Church with their names as benefactors on the plaque of honor. Perks will be delivered by June 2017.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal. If the campaign does not reach the funding goal, then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference. This is also an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special project! Help the campaign reach its goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
