Plans drawn up for charity
THE owner of a historic building in Wivenhoe has taken part in a charity architect scheme.
Architect in the House allows homeowners an hour-long consultation with a chartered architect in return for a donation to homeless charity Shelter.
Toby Roberts, who owns an 18th century former slaughterhouse called Shambles, took part in the initiative set up by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) by teaming up with local firm Purcell.
The recommended donation is £45, and since the scheme was launched last summer it has raised more than £100,000 for Shelter.
- To register for a consultation visit the Architect in the House website by August 21.
