PHASE 1: Middle Floor conversion into large hall sitting 218, incl. choir loft, lift, kitchen, toilets

PHASE 2: Ground Floor conversion to office space, library, bookshop, catechism class, toilets

PHASE 3: Top Floor conversion into 12 bedrooms for Shrine pilgrims + external safety staircases

The overall contract cost of Phase 1 is just over £400k, but VAT, contingencies and fees add a further £130-135k depending on input required. Thankfully we have already secured £485k, but we urgently need to raise circa £50k to cover the deficit and complete this current phase. Any surplus raised would be carried over into Phases 2 and 3 which combined are currently costed an additional £490k  (including VAT) but recent scheme changes give us hope that these costs can be brought down so are not yet fixed. Updated figures will be available for the next edition of Dowry. Should funds raised exceed final completion costs, they would be used to support the running costs of the new facility and adjacent Shrine.
