Raising the roof: Copped Hall Needs Friends!
Now that the Second Floor is in place, all we need is - to be able to get up there! We have a major project in mind to build a glazed roof over the light well, so that eventually a staircase can then be installed, allowing access to those impressive rooms – but we need your help.
As a Friend of the Copped Hall Trust, your membership is key to the restoration of the house and its gardens. Many of our “Friends” volunteer at Copped Hall. However we know that many cannot. There is something that ALL Friends can do to help with this project.
Could you hold a Coffee Morning, Afternoon Tea or other social event for us with some of your friends, neighbours or family to raise money for this project?
We will supply you with an information pack, to help you run your get together. All you have to do is make the drinks and invite people around. Whether one person comes, or your whole family, it will all count. By asking for a small donation from each person we will build that glazed roof. Just think, if 600 Friends ran a Coffee morning with say 8 guests and they each donated, £5 we could bring in over £30,000!!
This is also a great way to spread the news about wonderful Copped Hall. People who come to your event will also get £3 off a visit on one of our Guided Tour Days! In the future when you visit the house you can visit the Second Floor and say “I made this possible”.
Please help us. We are planning that the events should take place in February 2016.
