Media launch for Buy a Brick campaign

The Buy a Brick fundraising campaign for the Heart of the Community project was launched to the public this week, with a colourful photo-call on the site of the new church and community centre.

The Buy a Brick scheme invites everyone in the local area to play a part in building community, by chipping in with the cost of a brick or two for the new facilities in the centre of Stoke Gifford. Bricks are already on sale in the Old School Rooms on week days. They will also be available from lots of local meeting places and businesses, as well as our mobile community building sites at key events over the next few weeks.

The first brick was purchased by Jaci Crocombe, editor of the Little Stoke Gifford Matters magazine, who is covering the progress of the Heart of the Community project in detail. The magazine is also supporting the campaign by donating £150 towards the cost of the Buy a Brick display stands.

Bishop Mike of Bristol and Jack Lopresti MP have also bought bricks already. 

Jack Lopresti said, “I admire the ambition of the Heart of the community project. The new centre will be a great asset to serve the local population. I’m delighted to buy a brick and play my part in building local community.”

You can also buy bricks with just a couple of clicks, by following the simple online instructions on the Buy a Brick pages of this website.
