How you can support usThank you for your interest in supporting the work of the old Folkestone Cemetery ‘Friends’ volunteer group.Our work at the old Folkestone Cemetery is largely reliant on the good will of supporters, members, donors and the practical work of our volunteers. There are a variety of ways that you can support the ongoing upkeep of the Cemetery.DonateWe are always grateful for any donations towards our ongoing running costs. We need to raise funding each year to support the following items: equipment and machinery for grounds maintenance, fuel and servicing, running costs of the old Resting House, repair and maintenance of monuments, maintenance of site fabric, upkeep of facilities for volunteers and much more. If you would like to donate please contact us to make arrangements. In order to save costs we do not have a facility for online donation at present.Join UsThe ‘friends’ group has a growing list of supporters - it doesn’t cost anything to become a member/supporter. We hold an Annual General Meeting in May each year and members receive the Annual Report and Accounts and are invited to give a donation if they are able to. If you would like to join please contact us using the email address on the Contact page.Support in KindWe are always grateful for the donation of any goods or services in kind that can reduce our outgoings such as tools, equipment for outdoor work, office equipment, stationary and so on. Please contact the Chairman if you or your company/organisation could offer support in kind.VolunteerFor full details please see About Us page (http://fofc.uk/about.htm)Leave a LegacyLeaving the ‘Friends’ organisation a legacy in your will would enable us to build up a more stable income and plan our work on a more long-term basis.
