St Barnabas Chapel appeal

Mayday chapel exterior alternative view

The chapel at Mayday needs £30,000 worth of refurbishment.

Total raised so far £11,500

This includes a complete redecoration of the inside which suffered damage following a failure of the old heating system last year, some work on the roof, guttering and the small tower to stop any leaks into the chapel when it rains, and repairs to the stained glass windows where some of the smaller pieces have fallen away over time.

Another important part of the refurbishment involves restoring the link to Radio Mayday, the Trust’s radio station, so that people who can’t make it to the chapel for a service are able to listen to it on Patientline from their beds.

The chapel, which is 112 years old, is the spiritual heart of Mayday Hospital. It offers visitors, patients and staff of all faiths and also those with no faith, an area for worship and contemplation.

Could you help us with some of the repairing or restorations at the chapel – are you an expert at mending gutters, a keen seamstress, or could you donate some paint – if so contact Hilary by email on: hilary.fife@mayday.nhs.uk or telephone 020 8401 3105.

You can also make a donation for the appeal by sending it to Mayday Healthcare charity c539, c/o Chaplains office, Mayday Hospital, Croydon.

The following events are taking place to raise money for the appeal which everyone is invited to attend:
