Travelling together as part of the ongoing story….

Raising £2.7 million can seem a daunting prospect but everyone can play a part in the Capital Appeal through the Pilgrim £ (or $ or €!) Project.  This is a simple aid for either gathering together your own  personal donation over time, or to support a small fundraising event.  Collect £s with your fellow pilgrims to celebrate both the journey Columba made to Iona and your own personal pilgrim journey as part of that continuing story.

All monies raised will help the Iona Community to continue offering  hospitality to pilgrims from around the world as we upgrade the Abbey Centre to

  • increase accessibility
  • insulate and up-grade living space
  • install a renewable energy heating system
  • replace antiquated electrical and plumbing installations
  • extend the season of welcome and hospitality
