Cathedral donations up to £45k to be doubled

Date: 31 July 2014
IN AN EXCITING 11TH HOUR DEVELOPMENT of the Guildford Cathedral Appeal, an anonymous trust has announced it will match any donations up to a total of £45,000 to help reach £1.3million by the end of August deadline.

The £1.3m will allow it to submit an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a significant grant towards the total £7 million required to save the cathedral after the roof caved in last summer, and asbestos was found in the crumbling plaster of the ceiling.

Appeal Director, Siân Newton says: “The Cathedral Appeal has reignited a tradition of philanthropy, with more than 1,000 benefactors and hundreds more having sponsored and participated in Appeal events. From past brick givers to those who have recently graduated here, we’re so grateful to all those who have MADE THEIR MARK.

“The story of giving continues with this marvellous scheme to match donations. We’re so close to the £1.3m we need to submit our application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. To help ensure the People’s Cathedral is here to help future generations, please give today, whether in person, by post, text or online, and your donation will be doubled. “
