Stained glass window paid for by secret benefactor

Stained glass window Canon Bryan Rowe said the window had "a real wow factor about it"

An anonymous benefactor has paid for a stained glass window to be installed in a Cumbrian church.

St Michael's in Workington was given more than £25,000 for the remembrance window in the main body of the church.

St Michael's rector Canon Bryan Rowe said: "This has only been made possible through the generosity of someone within our congregation and community."

The window is similar in colour and style to the church's existing windows and was designed by artist Roy Coomber.

Canon Rowe added: "We feel it is vitally important that the sacrifices of others made for us during wartime and in battle must continue to be remembered."

There will be a service of dedication and blessing on 29 September.
