Can you help us put more solar panel (PVs) on the St John’s Church roof and generate more clean electricity to power the St John’s Centre and generate more money for the Sunshine grants to help support Old Trafford community groups.
Using a community share offer we successfully raised the funds to install 3.75Kw of solar panels (photovoltaic) on the St John’s Church roof (Phase 1) in 2012.
The solar panels earn money from the Government’s Feed in Tariff (FiT) , a green energy cash back scheme. This money is used to cover our minimal running costs (St John’s Sunshine is run entirely by volunteers), to pay out small ‘Sunshine Grants’ in our local community and offer a modest return of interest to investors
We want to install another 6.75Kw of solar panels (Phase 2) to generate even more clean solar electricity and money for the ‘Sunshine Grants’ pot. We have been busy raising the £11,000 needed and are well on the way to meeting that target to be able to install the panels by the end of February 2015.
If you would like to help us by making a small donation (of any amount) or perhaps by ‘buying’ a solar panel (£500) please post your donation to:
St John’s Sunshine, c/o St John’s Centre, St John’s Road, Old Trafford, M16 7GX.
