Shakespeare's Church Seeks Donations for Repairs Online

Trustees at the Holy Trinity in Stratford-upon-Avon, which is in need of urgent repairs, have turned to the Internet to raise money for the building's restoration. According to a Reuters story, the church, founded in 1210, is where William Shakespeare was baptized, where he worshipped as a boy, and where he and his wife Ann Hathaway were buried. The church requires significant restoration work, and so the church's trustees are setting up a website -- -- which they hope will publicize their fundraising campaign.
