Roof Repairs required quickly for Prince Rupert Church
The roof is leaking and the wind is howling
The opening line from Phil Collins, Roof is Leaking, 1981
The church organist at St. Andrew's Anglican Church might not be familiar with Phil Collin's 1981 hit song from the Face Value recording, but the congregation is fairly in tune with the sentiment, as roof troubles continue to make life difficult for those that sit among the pews of one of Prince Rupert's historic churches.
Towards a solution, and with the approaching November rains no doubt on their minds, St. Andrew's began looking for ways to raise funds to provide for repairs at the 4th Avenue West church, a landmark building which sits above the eastern portion of the downtown core.
The congregation recently held a Garage Sale and this evening, St. Andrew's fundraisers will be hosting a Loonie Auction at the Nisga'a Hall on Third Avenue, with the doors opening at 5:30 PM.
Organizers of the fund raising drive also remind those that wish to contribute that any donation over ten dollars will be issued a tax receipt for tax purposes.
If you wish to help out, or require more information on the fund raising efforts, you can call 250-627-1143 to learn more.
