The costs of running and maintaining Leicester Cathedral are substantial and continuing. However, as a result of the current coronavirus emergency giving by collection plate and envelope during services has ceased. Visitor income has also now entirely dropped but we continue to incur costs. This will cause us some very real financial pressures. Please consider supporting us through a donation or by regular giving during this difficult and uncertain time so that Leicester Cathedral can continue to be a Beating Heart for City and County. Many thanks for your kind support.
Alison Adams, Sub-Dean

If you would like to donate regularly by setting up your own Standing Order direct to Leicester Cathedral then please download a Standing Order Form.
During this time of lockdown due to coronavirus we ask that you send the Standing Order form directly to your bank. This is because the Cathedral and its offices are closed at the current time. Thank you very much indeed.
Thank you for your kind support. Together we can ensure that Leicester Cathedral continues to be a beating heart for City and County.
