Cause UK has been working with broadcaster and friend Selina Scott since 2011. She kindly gifted her time to take part in this film on behalf of our client, the Wesley Centre in Malton. Selina is a Patron of an appeal to help restore one of the most historic Methodist churches in the UK, to become a multi-purpose community centre and performance space.
Cause UK has been working with Paul Emberley, the Wesley Centre Development Lead to provide event management and public relation services.
Located in the heart of the rapidly growing market town of Malton, the Methodist Church has launched a £1m appeal to regenerate its large Grade II* listed building to secure its future with plans to equip it – not only as a place of worship in the 21st century – but as a community hub which visitors and the whole community can use.
The building which has been on Saville Street in Malton for more than 207 years was designed by the architect Rev William Jenkins, who worked alongside John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. It is the only surviving Grade II* listed building designed by Jenkins in Britain that is still in regular use today.
Patron of the appeal, Selina Scott who lives in north Yorkshire, said: “Malton, and its Methodist church, is dear to my heart. My grandfather used to be a Wesleyan preacher in Malton. My father, Charles, was chairman of Ryedale District Council, the authority governing Malton, so this heritage is precious to me.”
