Jenny Willott, Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, has urged places of worship, including churches, mosques, temples, gurdwaras and synagogues serving Cardiff to apply for a new £15 million fund available for the repair of roofs and guttering.

The Coalition announced the Listed Places of Worship Roof Repair Fund in the Autumn Statement and grants between £10,000 and £100,000 will be available to listed places of worship of all faiths and denominations across the UK, where roof repairs are deemed to be urgent and necessary.

Jenny said: "Places of worship play a huge part in many people's lives in Cardiff and this fund will help ensure some of our most significant buildings remain open as safe and sustainable places in our communities.

"I hope that some of them will be able to take advantage of the extra money available."
