THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY The St John at Hackney Project is designed to open up our building as a flexible and beautiful space in which to support a wonderfully diverse community.A wide variety of events are planned, from services to concerts, school visits to heritage tours, arts programmes to health clinics, all of which require different seating arrangements.
St John at Hackney is following the example of St Paul’s, Salisbury and Ely Cathedrals and Christ Church Spitalfields in choosing a new stacking chair to make this possible.
The Canterbury chairs work well with the architecture, are comfortable, durable and readily portable and will serve the needs of the building and the community. They stack up to 40 high and are stored on trolleys, so they are ideal for a large space which sometimes needs lots of chairs and sometimes needs none.
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP Your support is vital. We need 350 chairs and each chair costs £180. Please buy a chair and, if you wish, make a special dedication. You may choose, for example, to commemorate a special person or celebrate a family event. For each chair bought, a plaque will be placed on the back of the chair to remember your commemoration for many years to come.You may not feel able to donate a whole chair, but any donation is welcome and will help us to reach our goal.
YOUR DEDICATION ON A PLAQUE Please remember you must make a donation of £180 or more to qualify for a dedication Plaque. Up to ten words. If you wish to make a dedication please do so at our online guestbook. HERE.
