Engine Room fundraising run
Clergy, local residents, and members of the congregation from St Francis at the Engine Room in Tottenham Hale recently took part in a fun run to raise money for children’s activities.
The fun run took place at the Lee Valley Velopark near the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Stadium. Thirteen runners from the Engine Room and wider Tottenham Hale community took part, and successfully raised almost £2,000.
The money raised will allow the Engine Room to expand its provision for families in the local community, and be put towards the mothers and toddlers group which will form part of the new Engine Room facilities opening in October.
Fr Andrew Williams, Priest Missioner at the Engine Room, said:
“Our fun run was a great success, and the money raised will help the Engine Room to expand its work with young families in Hale Village. Our run was suggested and organised by members of the congregation and I would like to thank all those who took part on such a fantastic achievement, as well as those who helped sponsor us for their extremely kind contributions.”
In October 2017, St Francis at the Engine Room will relocate to new premises in what will be the first new church built in the Diocese of London in forty years. The new building will host the church, a community space, a cafe, and a 36-place nursery, allowing the Engine Room to massively expand its provision and the role which it plays in the local community. You can still donate to the cause by using their JustGiving Page.
