29 Nov Engine Room recognised for inspirational work
Congratulations to St Francis at the Engine Room, here in Hale Village, for receiving the Gold Award in the Best Building Project category at the Christian Funders’ Forum Awards at Mercers’ Hall in London.
The team fought off stiff competition at the annual awards which celebrates the great work done by grassroots organisations across the UK.
The Revd. Andrew Williams, Priest Missioner, St Francis at the Engine Room, said: “It is fantastic to be nominated for this award. There are a lot of people from the Diocese of London and locally here at the Engine Room who have put months and even years of hard work into getting the new Community Centre and Church off the ground.”
The awards showcase powerful initiatives that have been at work in communities through the UK and demonstrate how faith groups contribute at least £3 billion worth of social and welfare support to the UK every year, helping 48 million in the process.
Commenting, Michael Polledri said: “This award is totally deserved. St Francis at the Engine Room is an important part of the Hale Village community and we’re proud to support them in their work.”
