Heritage of London Trust
Heritage of London has rescued over 750 landmark sites over the years, and its projects bring together local communities and young people through its Proud Places programme. Delancey became a major donor of the Heritage of London Trust in February 2017, supporting its restoration projects across the City.
- In 2022, the 8-foot flying gilt dragon weathervane was returned to the top of St James’s Church, Bermondsey, preserving an iconic element of the Bermondsey vista. The church’s clock faces were restored and its drinking fountain put back into working order. Local primary school pupils took part in creative workshops while their dragon was up close before it returned to the tower
- In east London in 2017, Bow Church’s clock faces were restored
- In March 2022, HOLT returned a historic bell to Galleywall School in Bermondsey. To mark the return of the bell, its Proud Places programme team led school assemblies and smaller workshops, sharing the history of the local area and traditions of bells.
We are very grateful for Delancey’s continued support and it is fantastic that they are investing in the city in this way. Our work with local communities is exciting and Delancey’s support helps us deliver it.”
Delancey has worked with charity partner Snow Camp for over 8 years.
Snow Camp courses positively change the lives of young people by combining snowsports and intense youth work to engage, challenge and motivate young people – transforming their attitudes and behaviour, and enabling them to develop key life-skills, gain qualifications and find employment. Delancey has also been a strong supporter of Snow Camp’s annual ski challenges. In 2022 the ‘Delanski’ team returned to the mountains to participate in the AJ Bell Crans-Montana Marathon raising over £20,000 for the charity.
Since launching in 2003, Snow Camp have:
- Supported 15,466 young people

- Worked with 1045 youth organisation
To date, 23,427 new qualifications have been achieved by Snow Camp young people.
96% of young people who complete Snow Camp’s courses move on to either further training, education, employment or other positive destinations.
We are very grateful for the belief Delancey has in our charity, and for all the wonderful support over the years. Thank you from everyone at Snow Camp.”
