National Lottery support
for St Buryan Church
St Buryan parish church is delighted to announce it has been awarded initial support* by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for National Lottery funding towards the cost of urgent tower repairs.Heritage
Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, a development grant of £16,000 has been awarded to enable the church to develop detailed plans for the work needed for the project. The parish church will need to add a further £3,000 approximately to complete this first phase of work.
The parish church will then apply for a full grant from HLF of £170,000, a major step towards the approximately £220,000 needed for the full works.
Rev’d Canon Vanda Perrett said: “This is really good news for us, and we are thankful that the National Lottery has supported us in this early stage. We shall have to work hard and continue to raise funds for the tower works, while we work through the “round two” application for 2018. The initial support from the Heritage Lottery Fund is a strong endorsement of the work we need to do to make St Buryan Church Tower safe and sustainable for future generations, and we take heart from their support and encouragement.”
