A local church hall is being redeveloped to create a space that the whole community can use thanks to a £10,000 donation by integral blinds manufacturer Morley Glass & Glazing.

St Paul’s Church in Morley, Leeds had been a thriving hub for the local community for many years offering activities such as pre-school groups, play and stay groups, a children’s dance school and a place for family celebrations in the church hall. But the pre-fabricated structure of the church hall had come to the end of its life and needed to be demolished. Now, thanks to generous donations from local organisations including Morley Glass & Glazing, the church hall is being redeveloped and will soon be able to support activities for the local community once again.

Ian Short, Managing Director of Morley Glass & Glazing says: “We are delighted to be able to support the redevelopment of St Paul’s Church and help it to become a thriving centre of the local community. It was recently a storage and distribution centre for a Christmas toy appeal and has been offering free packed lunches during school holidays to underprivileged primary school children.  It’s doing some amazing work and will be able to support many more activities and groups once new facilities including new toilets, kitchen and café have been created. It’s going to be a fabulous resource for local people.”

The Leeds-based sealed unit manufacturer and ScreenLine® integral blinds supplier has sponsored and supported numerous charities, sports clubs and good causes throughout its 20 year history.
