CoPAA, Conservation of the Priory Alabaster Arch, are pleased to announce that our grant application to ChurchCare, the grant making arm of the Church of England, has been successful.
They have awarded us £10,000:
- This is a number only previously reached by the very generous British Gypsum contribution
- It is a massive statement of confidence in what we are doing
- It is the maximum grant they could give us (technically the Monuments grant is listed as a maximum of £8,000)
- The funding gap is now reduced to an estimated £13,600, hence a massive reduction in the liability on the Parish
