Latest church awards from WREN's Heritage Fund
Published: Wednesday, August 24, 2011
The National Churches Trust works in partnership with Waste Recycling Environmental (WREN) – a distributor of money from the Landfill Communities Fund awarding grants for community, conservation and heritage projects – to identify suitable candidates for its Heritage Fund.
The National Churches Trust is responsible for making recommendations for suitable church restoration projects in England, which are then decided and awarded by WREN annually.
We are delighted that WREN has this year agreed to fund six church projects, half the total number of schemes receiving grants from the Heritage Fund. The successful churches, and the grants awarded to them, are:
- St Edith’s, Monks Kirby, Warwickshire - £24,680
- St Peter’s, Felkirk, South Yorkshire - £20,000
- Church of the Epiphany, Gipton, Leeds - £50,000
- St Martin’s, Owston Ferry, North Lincolnshire - £47,909
- Holy Trinity, Ossett, West Yorkshire - £59,490
- St Lawrence’s, Thornton Curtis, North Lincolnshire - £25,000
