Jakub Kvasnicka & Felicity Clifford report from St Mary’s:

A campaign has been launched to raise more than £200,000 in restoration funds for a Grade A-listed church in Dundee.

St Mary’s in Lochee was built in 1866, but after a century and a half, the stonework has started to crumble away.

The money will be used to repair the structure as well as ensure the church’s community café can continue to provide support for those in need.

The church has stood at the heart of Lochee for the last 157 years, with the money to build it raised by people who lived in the area – many of whom worked in the city’s Jute Mills.
