Organiser

Friends of St DavidsSt David’s was built as the Soldiers’ Memorial Church with the promise “to keep green the faith and courage and sacrifice” of those who gave their lives in WWI. The Friends of Saint David’s Trust is a registered New Zealand charity founded to keep that promise, to Remember Them by saving the Soldiers’ Memorial Church from demolition.
