To raise money towards a statue of St Michael for our local church in Uxbridge during 2021

Out church was built in 1931, some 90 years ago. The building of the church was made possible, in part, by the generosity of the Gilbey family of Denham. The Gilbeys were well known wine merchants and (from 1872) distillers of gin. William Crosbie Gilbey and his wife Margarita (from the gin family of Gordon) are memorialised in a plaque near the Lady Altar and a number of Gilbeys were baptised at Our Lady of Lourdes and St Michael.

What we'll deliver:

  • A statue of St Michael for the church

Why it's a great idea:

An appreciation of our wonderful church and community. Our Lady of Lourdes & St Michael church is a true landmark for many years in Uxbridge. The church also has an important connection with the local Catholic school, St Mary’s in Rockingham Road.
