AP MØLLER FONDEN
Right from start, The AP Moller Foundation has been supportive of the building project and promised to sponsor half of the costs. We are most grateful for this incredibly generous offer. As part of this original pledge, and in order to help with cash flow, the AP Moller Foundation has recently granted us £60,000 to help with the process of preliminary surveys, and all the various permissions and consents required for work on a Grade II* Listed building.
St Katharine’s would like to express its sincere gratitude to Oak Foundation for a grant of GBP 670.000 towards the project regarding renovation and preservation of the church buildings. The grant funds enable the church to initiate the project and may be expended during the period of December 2016 – November 2019.
Heritage Lottery Fund has confirmed a £275,000 grant towards the restoration og St Katharine’s Church. The imposing stone facade of the Grade II* church will be restored and structurally stabilised, thanks to this generous support from National Lottery players.
The project aims to stabilise the turrets, which are at present in a precarious state, and to replace broken parts of the Bath stone cladding on the facade, securing safe use of the building in the future.
The Church would like to express a warm thank you to the Heritage Lottery Fund.
