A village church receives nearly £ 20,000 in grants to help ‘keep it in the heart of the community’.
Caister’s Holy Trinity Church on Norwich Road received two separate grants worth a combined £ 17,500 from the National Churches Trust and the Wolfson Foundation to help with repairs, remodeling and waterproofing of the sacristy .
Broadcaster and reporter Huw Edwards, vice chairman of the National Churches Trust, said the grants “will protect unique local heritage and help Holy Trinity continue to support local people as we begin to emerge from the pandemic.”
Paul Ramsbottom, CEO of the Wolfson Foundation, said: “Churches play a central role in the spiritual life of a community, but they are also an integral and highly valued part of our cultural heritage.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with the National Churches Trust on this important program supporting the preservation of these remarkable and wonderful buildings. “
