Quarterly charity.
Once again we will be supporting 4 charities during 2018. In order they are East Midlands Air Ambulance, Send a Child to Hucklow, Emmaus Hinckley and Guide Dogs for the Blind. As usual we will be supporting them at Coffee Mornings (3 for each charity minimum) and other events and the usual retiring collection in Chapel.

Heritage Open Day: 8th September 2018
Once again this Chapel will take part in the National Heritage Open Days on September 8th. Our theme this year is “Women of Influence”. The day will also feature our WWI, and articles from the archive will be on display. A Guided Walking Tour of Atkins Building, Hinckley & District Museum and Great Meeting Unitarian Chapel is being arranged to learn more about the Atkins Family and how this notable hosiery industry family are linked with three very different Grade Listed buildings.
The Heritage Open Day tour starts at 10:30am on Saturday 8th September at Hinckley & District Museum with a guided tour round the 17th century framework knitter’s cottages. Phillip Lindley highlights the connection between the cottages and the Atkins Family. The tour then moves to the Atkins Building where Business Centre Principal Officer Rebecca Wilbur will be guiding visitors round and focusing on the family's industrial past. The final part takes place in the Great Meeting Chapel with Hugh Beavin who will explore the reasons why the Atkins Family chose the Chapel as their place of worship.
