We are delighted to announce that the St Helens Centre Appeal has been awarded a grant of £999,600 from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery, the project can go begin and enable the significant repairs and refurbishment work on St Helen’s Church which will save the Church for future generations and create a new valuable resource for the Island. Work is expected to start this spring and last approx. for 12 months.
