AN APPEAL FOR HISTORIC CHURCHES & CHAPELS OF NORTH CRAVEN

The North Craven Heritage Trust, in response to a number of requests for financial help to the repair of historic churches and chapels in North Craven, has set up a special fund for this purpose.

The objectives of the Trust's fund are to collect funds and distribute grants and interest free loans to churches and chapels of any Christian denomination in North Craven, to help pay the cost of essential fabric repairs which are beyond the means of their congregations. Aid is normally restricted to churches and chapels erected before the First World War.

The idea behind the setting up of the fund is that many people in North Craven, who perhaps are not regular attenders at church, nevertheless love the ancient buildings and wish to see them maintained.

The fund will be administered by the officers of North Craven Heritage Trust, meeting annually with the Appeal Patrons or their representatives to allocate grants. Parishes eligible to apply: Airton, Arncliffe, Austwick, Bentham, Burton-in-Lonsdale, Clapham, Giggleswick, Hellifield, Horton-in-Ribblesdale, Ingleton, Kirkby Malham, Langcliffe, Long Preston, Malham, Otterburn, Rathmell, Settle, Stainforth, Thornton-in-Lonsdale, Tosside, Wigglesworth. Applications from neighbouring parishes will also be considered.

How you can help:

a) by making a donation to the Hon. Treasurer

b) by entering into a Deed of Covenant. Because the North Craven Heritage Trust is a registered Charity, the value of your gift can be greatly increased, as the Trust can reclaim the tax you have paid on the donation,

c) by organising a fund-raising event.
