It Doesn’t Rain Unless it Pours…

 St. Peter’s receives further grants.

 “It doesn’t rain unless it pours” – and the Vicar of Huddersfield is not just talking the rain that we’ve had of late or about the fabric and roofs of St. Peter’s

 St. Peter’s Church in the town centre of Huddersfield received further good news with further grants of £40,000 from the National Churches Trust, plus a further £7,500 from the Garfield Weston Foundation towards the restoration of the Victorian building.

 This follows  a substantial grant of £155,000  towards restoration work from English Heritage – the Vicar, Church Wardens and Parochial Church Council were looking towards a great deal of hard work to raise money to match fund the grant.

“Accepting the help from English Heritage committed us to raising the best part of £60,000 from other grant making bodies and good honest fund raising,” The Rev’d Canon Simon Moor, said: “but the notification of not one but two further offers of help is astonishing.”

The congregation has still to raise around £10,000 to pay for this phase of the restoration.

Simon begins the West Highland Way on Monday 14th – 96 mile in total. He hopes to raise a significant amount through sponsorship.
