SOMERSET CHURCHES TRUST ROOF ALARM CAMPAIGN SUCCESS
Easter 2020 has seen the successful completion of Somerset Churches Trust’s roof alarm grant campaign in conjunction with Allchurches Trust, the charitable owner of Ecclesiastical Insurance.
Against a background of continuing lead thefts from churches, Chris Hawkings (Trustee) led Somerset Churches Trust (SCT) in a pioneering project with Allchurches Trust. The partnership was to use SCT’s existing grant giving scheme to distribute funds to mainly rural churches in Somerset to enable them to install roof alarms.
