Join us today and help us not only to enhance this beautiful building but also to support the life and work of the Cathedral.

The Friends share in the life of the Cathedral:

  • by their interest and gifts;
  • by their prayer;
  • by attendance at services and events;
  • by meeting people of similar interests.

The fabric and the life of the Cathedral depend on voluntary giving, so why not come and join us by becoming a Friend?   You can subscribe annually by cheque, banker’s order, or by becoming a life member, all of which can be Gift Aided if applicable.

In recent years the Friends have helped the Cathedral by paying for:-

  • the repair of a clerestory window and a contribution towards a second one;
  • the figure of Joseph, for the new Cathedral Crib;
  • choral scholarships;
  • a “Battle of Bosworth” display at the Cathedral Flower Festival.
