The charity responsible for Braceborough's St Margaret of Antioch Church - targeted by roof lead thieves earlier this year - has signed up to LotterySK.
Braceborough Educational Charity will use the money raised through South Kesteven District Council's community lottery to replace the lead and maintain the Grade 1 listed building, which dates back to the 13th century.
Sections of lead were stolen from the roof in May and, due to the level of premium required, the loss was uninsured and the church has insufficient reserves to cover the repairs and replacing the stolen lead.
Church warden Malcolm Ravilious told Bourne Nub News: "Since May we have raised more than £5,000 locally.
"A hugely successful Gift Day, cream tea, summer barbecue, sponsored cycle ride and donations to the appeal fund have helped us off to this great start towards our target of £30,000.
"Our local community have been amazing.
"Individuals and groups of people have donated to the Gift Day and others have organised and shared these events on behalf of St Margaret's Church.
"We have registered with LotterySK so a wider audience can support us.
"We would love as many folk as possible to buy tickets and nominate our charity."
Every weekly LotterySK draw offers the chance to win £25,000, with 60p from every £1 ticket sold going to local good causes.
