FUNDRAISERS in Stapleton will find out next month if their application for a £100,000 grant from the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund has been successful.
The team at Holy Trinity Church have managed to raise £38,000 towards fixing the landmark  building but their target is a tall order - £240,000.
The Grade ll starred listed building is recognised as a fine example of Victorian Gothic architecture.
It was built in the mid 19th century from pennant stone quarried at Broom Hill and was dedicated in 1857.
Its most notable feature is its 170ft spire, which can be seen from the M32 and from many parts of the city.
The congregation is determined to preserve it for future generations. Its next fundraising effort is a concert on Saturday May 7 by the Easton Corp of the Salvation Army. Tickets are £8, available from 0117 9585556 or office@holytrinitystapleton.org.uk
