17 May St Andrews Middleton Church Roof Appeal
St Andrews Middleton Church Roof Appeal
Free donations to repair the village church roof every time you shop online!
First and foremost, St Andrews Middleton is a place of worship for the local community and others from further afield. It is also a building of significant historical interest. Whatever your religious standing, we should all be proud to live in a village with a grade 1 listed church and a history going back over 2,000 years. You will be aware that in November 2019, half the lead was stolen from St Andrews church roof. Following the theft, the PCC installed temporary rainproofing to prevent damage to the infrastructure and a lead alarm was installed to prevent further theft. We have now identified sufficient funds to replace the lead that was stolen with an alternative non-lead material. Historic England and parish funds have contributed to the repair.
The remaining cost has been covered with a 5-year Diocesan loan. As a village, we can all help to maintain the village church for the benefit of future generations. As part of the fundraising initiative, please help by setting up an account with easyfundraising to provide free donations (i.e. donations from the on-line store) every time you shop online.
