St. Peter’s receives further grants.
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.
