Churches across the North of England are undergoing significant refurbishment work thanks to the efforts of Halifax based company Happy Days Building and Roofing.
Formed as a social enterprise company and operating to financially support the homeless charity Happy Days, Happy Days Building and Roofing provides accomplished heritage roofers and has partnered with numerous churches to preserve these historic buildings.
There are an estimated 37,500 churches in the UK, many of them requiring significant maintenance.
The role of the company is to provide both a premier building and roofing service, but also help homeless people with accommodation, work and a new purpose in life.
Dave Fawcett, CEO of Happy Days UK Charity, said: “We’re delighted to be working on such historic buildings, and it’s doubly important to us as we regularly partner with the church to assist in our work with the homeless.
“Not only will this help keep these buildings in use, but the proceeds will go right back in to the local community and tackle the problems of rough sleeping and homelessness”.
