Potterton Commercial has donated two boilers to Salem Methodist Church in Cheslyn Hay, Staffordshire, with free installation provided by specialist church heating contractor, Christopher Dunphy
The outdated existing heating system - including a 44kW boiler - was beginning to fail and was unlikely to last much longer. This left the church in a serious predicament as it needed to raise funds to replace the system to ensure the congregation could comfortably attend services and community events.
A member of the congregation contacted the boiler manufacturer to assist with the replacement of the heating system. Potterton Commercial donated two 70kW Sirius wall hung boilers. With added support from Christopher Dunphy Ecclesiastical, the installation time was also donated, with the engineering team working at their own cost.
The combined team also gifted 15 type 33 radiators, as well as two horizontal flue kits and cascade frames. In addition, a ‘Spirotech’ controller was installed to allow centralised control by the churchwarden.
The donations have enabled the church to bring the project forward by two years.
Neville Small, sales director at Potterton Commercial said: “We were delighted to offer this church a solution to their system replacement by donating the boilers and system components, and ultimately helping to safeguard the comfort and experience of visitors to the church without delay.”
Peter Brimble, property secretary at Salem Methodist Church, said: “We are very grateful to both Potterton Commercial and Christopher Dunphy Ecclesiastical Limited for the help and support they have given us in providing equipment and expertise to help us to move forward with the replacement of our heating system for the church.”
