Shrewsbury-based caravan dealership Salop Leisure has raised £1,000 towards an appeal to save the town’s unique St Chad’s Church tower.
The company, based alongside Shrewsbury bypass at Emstrey, adopted the church as its charity last year, raising money at shows and a variety of other events. The church has so far raised £1.2 million and needs to find a further £25,000 by the end of March to cover the cost of the tower restoration.
St Chad’s, the only Grade I Listed circular Georgian church in England, sits overlooking the beautiful Quarry Park, the town centre and River Severn.
Salop Leisure’s chairman, Tony Bywater, said: “St Chad’s is one of the most important historic buildings in our town and, as a company, we are proud to be associated with this campaign to preserve it for future generations.”
David Tudor, St Chad’s development director, said: “It is very nice to have the support of a high profile business like Salop Leisure. Without this support, we would struggle not only with fundraising but also to raise the public awareness of the appeal.
“The response to the appeal has been fantastic and we would welcome support from other companies in the town.”
