We would like to thank our supporters during Generosity Week 2023!
A message from Anna Pitt, CEO
We are deep in the midst of a detailed restoration and conservation project for our four globally acclaimed Burne-Jones stained-glass windows. Our Divine Beauty project simply would not have been possible without the generosity of our congregation.
We would like to thank members of the congregation who have volunteered to lead guided tours, school visits and support with open days. They have given so generously of their time, energy and enthusiasm. Over the course of the conservation work in the cathedral, we will have offered roughly 288 hours of time on the scaffolding to more than 3,000 people. This wouldn’t have been possible without volunteers working alongside staff and contractors to create accessible and interesting engagement for cathedral visitors.
We would also like to thank our congregation for their strong financial support. Through the Pandemic and in the recent post-pandemic/cost of living era, our regular giving has remained strong. This support for the core function of the cathedral is the reassuring basis from which we can take on such additional, exciting projects.
We have also been very grateful beneficiaries of a number of legacies which Chapter has been able to use to support the Divine Beauty project. Importantly, those people who have left a legacy for the cathedral have left an unrestricted legacy; meaning that Chapter can determine the best use of those funds.
Financial support from our congregation, be it regular giving, one-off donations or legacies has another important function. It allows us to create a pool of core funding, from which we can seek other donations or matched funding.
