We provide in the region of £70,000 each year in regular grants to the Cathedral. This year we have provided grants for:

  • The Girls’ Choir.  We pay the expenses of the Girls’ Choir each year, plus the costs for each of the girls to learn a musical instrument.
  • Two scholarships for boy choristers
  • The maintenance of the trees in the Close
  • Cathedral Flowers.  We pay for the flowers in the Cathedral throughout the year.
  • The Cathedral Christmas tree.  The Friends provide the funding for the large Christmas tree at the West End of the Cathedral each year.
