In February 2017, Delancey became a major donor of the Heritage of London Trust, supporting its programme of restoration projects across the city.
Founder and Chairman of Delancey, Jamie Ritblat said:
“We are very proud to support the work of the Heritage of London Trust which breathes life back into historic buildings and monuments in all corners of London.
The Heritage of London Trust has rescued many London landmarks at risk of dereliction. As London’s independent heritage charity, its grants have restored over 600 of the most characterful parts of the city – its street clocks, fountains, statues and music halls. Delancey is thrilled that this new partnership will help support the day to day work of the Trust. It will also enable the restoration of the clock tower of St Mary’s Church, Bow. This medieval church was badly bombed in World War Two but survives as a fine part of London’s East End. We are delighted to be helping preserve it, and others, for the future.”
Director of the Heritage of London Trust, Dr Nicola Stacey, said:
“We are so pleased that Delancey is supporting the Heritage of London Trust. Places like St Mary’s Church, Bow, have weathered so much London history and continue to play a vital role in the community. Our projects help preserve the places that give London its vibrancy and charm. We focus on heritage at risk and liaise with local organisations to ensure that once buildings are restored their future is secure. It is fantastic that Delancey is investing in London’s heritage in this way.”
