ISKCON Leicester has secured a £750,000 grant to carry out urgent work to save the roof of its stunning Grade II* listed building in Leicester city centre.
The ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) Leicester building is the former headquarters of the Leicestershire Banking Corporation and one of the most iconic Victorian masterpieces of architect Joseph Goddard. ISKCON has owned the building for 10 years.
However, the Centre is on the national Buildings at Risk Register – its roof is in poor condition, with water getting into the building and jeopardizing its historic interior décor.
ISKCON has raised £350,000 towards the cost of works, but it isn’t sufficient to cover the vast extent of the work required to repair the building.
