St Andrew�s Church in Orwell is a Grade 1 listed building which periodically needs work on its fabric to keep it in good condition to be used by the community. We have recently begun work on restoring our tower which is a landmark for miles around.
The work has been made possible by grants from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, the Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust and The Wolfson Foundation, as well as local support through Friends of St Andrew�s Church and fundraising events by St Andrew�s PCC.
We are very grateful for the support from all our funding partners:
Cambridgeshire Historic Churches Trust (CHCT) helps congregations with the repair and enhancement of their historic places of worship by offering grants and loans. Its main source of funding is the CHCT annual "Ride and Stride".
Each September cyclists and pedestrians of all ages throughout Cambridgeshire find people to sponsor them for the number of churches, chapels, and colleges which they visit on the day. Half the money is returned to the participants' nominated church or chapel, the other half goes to help churches with the costs of repairs and for restoration. Details of the Trust's work can be found at their new web site:- www.camhct.uk
The Friends Of St Andrew�s Church (FOSAC) are a village based charity raising funds for the maintenance of the fabric of our beautiful church. They are a hard-working team, who, together with many helpers and generous donations from the people in the village and surrounds, have organised many fund-raising events which has enabled them to donate a fantastic �10,000 towards the tower repairs
The Wolfson Foundation (www.wolfson.org.uk) is a charity that was established in 1955.
The Wolfson Foundation supports and promotes excellence in the fields of science and medicine, health, education and the arts & humanities. All funding is based on expert peer review.
Over �750 million (�1.25 billion in real terms) has been awarded in grants to some 10,000 projects over the last 58 years.
