All Saints Church in Hunmanby has been awarded £57,300 to help address urgent roof repairs through the Listed Places of Worship: Roof Repair Fund.

The church was one of 33 historic places of worship in Yorkshire and the Humber to benefit from a share of £1,644,500 funding.

This money is part of a wider funding package of £22.9 million to 401 historic places of worship across the UK.

Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne said: “Churches and cathedrals are a pillar of British life and we are committed to ensuring future generations will be able to admire and use these historic buildings.

“Thanks to the work we’ve done over the last six years to secure Britain’s long term economic security, we are able to support the upkeep and repair of places of worship across the UK.”

Heritage Minister Tracey Crouch said: “Churches and cathedrals are the jewel in the crown of our national heritage and it is vital they remain in good repair and are accessible for all.

“These buildings are at the heart of communities across the country and I am delighted so many will benefit from this important fund.”
