RegaLead Provides Support For WW1 Centenary Window

RegaLead is very proud to have given its support to a stunning project to mark the Centenary of World War 1. The window, which takes pride of place at St Matthew’s Church in Stoke-on-Trent, spans 50 by 10 feet and depicts six soldiers, loaded with kit, trudging across an embankment in Ypres, Belgium.

With 48 panes of glass to fill and a deadline of the church’s remembrance service on 9th November, the project was no mean feat. So project organiser Frank McGregor employed the help of local school children to create the designs for the border, and RegaLead to supply the coloured films.

Frank explains: “As part of the Hanley Team Ministry I try to take a creative approach to my church work in the community. In the run up to the centenary, many churches have incorporated plaques and memorials and while thinking about what to do at St Matthew’s we realised that the church would really benefit from a stained glass window, so we thought this would make a great tribute and would look lovely with the sun streaming through the coloured glass.

“We approached local businesses for a sponsor in order to buy the materials and one, Modern Glass, showed us a RegaLead brochure and recommended we speak to them. We were delighted when they offered to supply the coloured films and also cover the cost of 50% themselves. When it came to the Remembrance Service, people were really impressed with the impact of the tribute, which was particularly poignant as one of the soldiers depicted was local, and his niece was in the congregation. This project is ongoing for the next four years, and we plan to add more colour in time for next year’s service to keep it fresh and new. Thanks to RegaLead’s support we are more than able to do this and any leftover donations are going to Help for Heroes.”

Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director at RegaLead adds: “We were more than happy to lend our support to this very worthwhile project. It is something very close to our hearts at RegaLead, particularly in light of the fundraising we did last year for Help for Heroes. Having attended the Remembrance Service at St Matthew’s, even I didn’t appreciate the size and scale of the window until I saw it for myself. I look forward to seeing how it develops over the next four years.”
