Calling All Friends
The Friends of Worcester Cathedral need your support, talents and money to help the Cathedral Chapter raise half a million pounds in 2018. They have to match the Heritage Lottery Grant awarded to develop the 12th Century Medieval Undercroft as a Community and Education Centre, a project which will be of benefit to all the population of the county and beyond.
Chapter have asked The Friends to play a major part in the fund raising and thus be among the named sponsors of the project, with the requisite recognition and prestige that will accompany our contribution. The Friends are hoping to raise the money to conserve the medieval sculpture, Christ in Majesty, which graces College Hall and is part of the Undercroft project. This will cost around £50,000.
Our Challenge is to contribute £50,000 which is ten percent of the whole amount!
