RESCUE ST LUKE'S ROOF

At the beginning of June thieves damaged St Luke's copper canopy on the parish centre entrance.  What we didnt know until the 21st of June is that thieves had also stolen a large amount of lead from the roof of the church too!

 

Following the recent heavy storm church goers were distressed to discover the rain pouring into their beloved church.  A massive clean up operation has since taken place and closer inspection has estimated repairs costing in the region of £20,000!

 

Now St Luke's needs your help to repair the damagethis thoughtless act has caused.  The people of St luke's church would like to say a big thank you to the Cleveland Fire Brigade for coming to the rescue when it happened.
