A MADLEY company has donated £1,000 to the village church to help repair the organ and roof.

ETL systems made the donation to St Mary's in Madley for repair of the pipe organ and church roof.

As a growing business in the area, the church asked ETL Systems to support the restoration efforts.

The 13th century church is currently aiming to raise £750,000 for full restoration of the roof - some funding will be granted by church conservation trusts.

CEO of ETL, Ian Hilditch, said: “We are very pleased that we could help out with such a big project for Madley church.

"It is important for all of us at ETL to support our local community and the church is at the heart of this.”

ETL has already helped Madley Primary School with a donation towards their school bus, Madley parish council with the introduction of new signage within the village and donations towards the new engineering university in Hereford.

ETL Systems specialises in the design and manufacture of radio frequency equipment for the satellite communications industry.
