Help! Sarah Wray Hall needs a new Roof
Help us replace the aging roof on this beloved, historic one-room schoolhouse
in Garden Bay, Pender Harbour
We've almost reached our goal!
After two unsuccessful grant applications this year, we're now urgently fundraising for a new roof for Sarah Wray Hall. Its deteriorating and moss-covered roof is over 30 years old, unsafe, and at risk of leaking.
Built in 1931, Sarah Wray Hall (originally Irvines Landing School) is one of the few remaining one-room schoolhouse structures in BC. The building was extensively renovated by volunteers under the auspices of the Pender Harbour Living Heritage Society between 2008 and 2014, and re-opened as Sarah Wray Hall in 2014.
We must preserve this resource, which is now the harbour's Heritage Centre and a local community meeting place.
Our usual fundraising has been severely curtailed as a result of COVID and our grant applications were not successful. Our goal is to raise $20,000 to help fund this project. Tax receipts are available for donations over $20.
All donations are greatly appreciated! Stay tuned for more fundraising activities coming up.
Thank you so much to
all of our wonderful supporters!
