The funding was granted at the YHCT’s recent grants committee, which saw over £58,000 allocated to fund vital repairs to the roofs, windows and ancient stonework of 12 of the region’s most vulnerable places of worship, including £4000 to St Wilfrid in South Kilvington.
Reverend Malcolm Wainwright said: “All Saints is a real hub of community life and we are delighted to have received this funding. It means the vital repair works can now begin, the church can continue to offer a range of activities and be a welcoming place for the local community.”
David Quick, Chair of the Yorkshire Historic Churches Trust, said “With its prominent spire being seen for miles around, All Saints is an important part of the local community, and we are delighted that this last amount of funding will ensure the essential repair works can now begin”. He continued: “The YHCT relies on the generosity of friends and donors to help fund repairs which will ensure the county’s much loved places of worship remain standing from many years to come.”
