Appeal for Coventry Peace House

Coventy Quaker Meeting has supported Coventry Peace House for 20 years, and is appealing for donations from Quaker individuals to “the Pillar Project” to create a 50 person community room.

Background – From 1998, Coventry Peace House has been a focus of reconciliation and sustainability in inner city Coventry – breaking down the barriers that separate local people through educational activities. Their work includes –

  • Coventry night shelter for asylum seekers offers beds to 20 people each night.
  • Coventry Peace House bike workshop works with the nearby community. Foleshill is a very multi-cultural area.
  • Educational Trust – tackling inequality through highlighting social issues and promotes the involvement of ‘hard to reach groups’ in mainstream activities especially art projects.

Read more about the Peace House’s work. For more details, please contact the co-ordinator Beth Ash:

The pillar project will double the size of the usable community space, the essential hub of so much of the charity’s work.  The images above show the room as it is now, and an artists impression with the pillar removed.  See full details of the work proposed.

Coventy Quaker Meeting is appealing for donations from individual Quakers who wish to support this proposal. The total needed is £10,450 – we have currently appealed to Quaker Meetings and Trusts and raised £3000 – plus some individual donations. We are trying to collect donations of £50 or £100 so that we can build up our funding quickly.

If you are willing to donate, please make out a cheque to ‘Coventry Peace House’, mark on the back ‘pillar project’, and send to: Coventry Peace House, 311 Stoney Stanton Road, Coventry, CV65DS​.
