Crich Church Contribution
Harron Homes have once again shown their commitment to the community by donating £2000 to the Crich Church Chapel Roof Appeal.
Crich Wesley Chapel was built in 1765 and is the oldest chapel in Derbyshire and the second oldest in the UK. The village of Crich is home to just 3000 people. The church plays a major role in the community, not just as a place of worship but as a meeting place for many local groups.
The chapel is under threat as the roof is in danger of collapsing which will push the external walls out. The estimated cost of replacing the roof is £20,000. The congregation and various groups that use the church have managed to raise £6700 but they need support from the wider community to make up the shortfall. As part of their appeal they have set up a crowdfunding page.
When Harron Homes heard about the plight of the church they decided to offer their support. They have donated £2000 towards the appeal.
Their contribution has been greatly received. Professor David Ashton says; “This generous donation provides a tremendous boost to our appeal.”
Jim Gray said; “We have been moved by the community’s warmth and interest shown by some local businesses in wanting to preserve this historic building for future generations.”
Harron Homes build luxury residential developments across the Midlands and Yorkshire. They pride themselves on building communities not just houses. Their Devonshire Gardens development is located in Crich so the church will directly benefit their residents.
The Devonshire Gardens development is made up of beautiful four and five bedroom homes. These exclusive properties have already attracted significant interest from buyers.
There is a range of different property styles available to suit the different needs of individual families. Every home is built to an exceptional standard and buyers have the option to customise the fixtures and fittings to create a truly unique home.
