Become a Friend

Running for churches!

Dr Emily Guerry is senior lecturer in medieval history, a runner,  a devoted churchcrawler, and a member of the Friends of Friendless Churches.

Keenly aware of the pressures facing so many churches and charities, in 2021 Emily chose to fundraise for the FoFC. Please note that Emily’s fundraising campaign has now closed but you can support the Friends of Friendless Churches by making a donation to us directly.

In her words,  I'm going to fundraise for the Friends of Friendless Churches because I want to do what I can to ensure that these heritage sites continue to survive, providing places of succour and solace for future generations. Emily has set up a JustGiving page, and in a few short weeks has already raised almost £2,000!  Go, Emily!!

We are so touched by Emily's support and truly bowled over by the generosity of those who have donated. Our most heartfelt thanks to you all. Emily will be running the Battersea Park 5k on 5th June, so there is still plenty of time to donate!

Dr Emily Guerry Running For Churches

Thank you!

We are so grateful for all of the fundraisers. The people who believe in our cause, who love these places and want them to survive.

We run our charity on a shoestring - putting every possible penny into repairing and rescuing historic churches. This comes with considerable financial challenges, and we are only able to do this work with support from our members, donors, legators and volunteers.

Thank you all so much.
