The Friends of Futuna Charitable Trust needs your support!
On 19th March 2011, the 50th anniversary of Futuna Chapel the Trust were able to announce the retirement of the remaining $50,000 of debt on the purchase of the building. This was achieved through the generosity of the Polmadie Charitable Trust who had granted the Trust an interest free loan in 2008 to cover the remaining debt. Now that the Chapel is mortgage free the Trust is now concentrating on raising the funds necessary to fully restore the exterior fabric of the Chapel. The Trust needs $500,000 for the full refurbishment of the Chapel including exterior, windows and roof and there is a commitment to achieving this goal by March 2013.
