AWE has donated £250 to a local charity that is raising money for the renovation of the 900 year old St Peter’s Church in Ufton Nervet, which is to become a local Cultural Community Centre.
St Peter’s Ufton Charitable Trust, was set up in 2002, when the much needed renovations of the Grade II listed church began. Prior to this St Peter’s church was in decay and had been redundant for many years.
Michele Maidment, Secretary to the AWE community committee said: “AWE is committed to supporting local charities and the renovation of St Peter’s Church will mean the community will be able to experience musical, theatrical and creative workshops and events as well as have a historic place of worship to appreciate and visit.”
Peter H Newall, Founder and Chairman of The St Peter’s Ufton Charitable Trust project said:
“This will contribute towards the building of our Cultural Community Centre called The Spire where members of the community including AWE employees, will be welcomed to enjoy the exciting range of events we will be organising here. Thank you AWE for this very helpful and welcome donation.”
AWE’s Linsey White met with the Chairman of Trustees to handover the donation from the AWE community committee on Tuesday April 28th.
