This 300-year-old church was once at the heart of Sunderland. It offered community and religious services as well as housing the city’s first public library, civic rooms, and even the local fire engine. It was used and loved by countless people. But gradually the city centre shifted; Holy Trinity fell out of use and now this Grade I listed building is at risk of collapse.
The Churches Conservation Trust is urgently raising funds to save it and transform it into a vibrant cultural and community space. We are awaiting the outcome of a Heritage Lottery Fund bid and in the meantime are working to raise a total of £50,000 in match funding by the end of March. We've already reached £30,000 through a public appeal, but we have £20,000 still to go.
We've launched our first ever crowdfunding campaign as a final push to save this important piece of English history - and this Thunderclap to help spread the word far and wide. Please help us to meet our target! If we don't act soon, it will be too late.
