Fund Raising


Fighting a planning application is never easy and when one comes, we are going to need expert assistance.

We have already had some fund raising events, such as Coffee Mornings, the Skittles Night and the Save Manning's Pit Pub Quiz .  These events have helped us with the purchase of leaflets and promotional materials, etc, and allowed us to make a start as well towards the costs of future expert help.   We will now need to raise about  £10,000.

If you would like to help us by making a donation:

You can do this by bank transfer to the Friends of Manning's Pit Community Bank Account:

Sort Code:   20-04-59
Bank Account Number:  73964035

Or you can send a cheque to

The Treasurer
Friends of Manning's Pit
85A Pilton Street
Barnstaple
North Devon
EX31 1PQ.

Please make all cheques out to "Friends of Manning's Pit".

If you require more information, please email us at  fundraising.manningspit@gmail.com


The Friends of Manning's Pit are the group set up by Pilton and Bradiford people to save this special place.

Please note all donations received are accepted on the basis that in the event funds are not fully expended on fighting development, or in attempting to purchase the site, then any money left over will be donated to local charities in Pilton and area , as it would be impractical to return funds to donors.
