A Greenwich church is celebrating the donation of £119,000 towards its restoration.
St Alfege Church, in Greenwich Church Street, was awarded a grant from not-for-profit heritage organisation Viridor Credits to go towards stonework cleaning and conservation of the upper levels of its east portico.
Vicar Chris Moody said: "We are very grateful to Viridor Credits for this wonderful grant. This means we can get on with the next phase of our works."
Mr Moody also said he would be inviting all those who donated to their appeal - which has so far raised £430,000 - to a special service, to be held on September 28 at 6.30pm.
Appeal chairman Tim Barnes, said: "The people of Greenwich have been extraordinarily generous. Their efforts have not gone unrecognised."
St Alfege Church is a Grade I listed building, the first of Hawksmoor’s complete church projects in London. For more information visit st-alfege.org
