Fundraising

Quakers have had a Meeting House in Coventry from the 1600s. The current Meeting House was built in 1953. Our main room is on the first floor, making access a challenge. Can you support our building improvement plan? We plan to upgrade our building and make it fully accessible, for ourselves and for the many community groups that use it.
