Legacies

Making a lifetime gift or leaving a legacy to All Saints Parish Church 

At All Saints, Cheadle Hulme we welcome all gifts, however large or small. We promise to use your gift to make a difference to the future mission and ministry of our parish. 

We acknowledge gifts in whatever way the donor and/or his/her executors feel most appropriate. Equally, we can make sure that gifts remain anonymous if the donor prefers. 

Since needs change over the years, we encourage you to leave a gift in your will for the general purposes of the parish rather than for a restricted purpose. We will discuss possible uses of your gift with your executors when the time comes, bearing in mind the church’s priorities at the time. 

If you would like to talk to someone in confidence about leaving a legacy or making a gift during your lifetime please contact the Vicar, Rev Sarah Hancock on 0161 485 3455 or by email on vicar@allsaintscheadlehulme.org.uk or our Giving Coordinator, Kate Hughes on 0161 485 1010 or by email on giving@allsaintscheadlehulme.org.uk.  

If you would like to make a gift to our church in memoriam, please come and discuss this with us too. It can be a wonderful and appropriate way to remember a loved one. 

How past gifts and legacies have transformed All Saints

If you look around All Saints, you will see the results of previous gifts and bequests. Sometimes these are obvious such as a plaque on one of the cupboards in the vestry or below a stained glass window or the name of our meeting room. Others are less visible. You may have just taken for granted the comfy pew cushions or the colourful robes of the Vicar. However, all these donations have, in their own way, made a difference to the life of the church.

Building the Cartwright Butler Room in 2004The Cartwright-Butler Room 

In December 2004, the Cartwright-Butler meeting room was opened along with the new vestry, kitchen, flower room, toilets and cloister along the north side of the church.

These renovations included important improvements to access at All Saints including a wheelchair ramp and disabled toilet facilities. They also rectified some subsidence issues, which were threatening the fabric of the church.

All Saints had begun a fundraising campaign for the renovations but a bequest from sisters Peggy Cartwright and Marjorie Butler enabled the plans to become reality. 

Marjorie was a member of our congregation and involved in the Friday Club. Her younger sister Peggy’s connection to All Saints was via Marjorie.
