The Chester Cathedral Development Trust

Chester Cathedral COVID-19 Survival Fund

Having endured two lockdowns and suffering greatly reduced income, we find ourselves financially insecure and in need of your support now, more than ever, in order to maintain the building, operate our business and keep our doors open in 2021.

We all find ourselves in exceptionally challenging times as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to affect our country. The immensity of what is befalling our world is beyond the experience of most of us, and the financial difficulties that affect many individuals and organisations affect us also.

Chester Cathedral relies upon the donations of its visitors and income from its estate to remain open.

As these streams become ever-more strained, we need your help and support more than ever, in order to maintain the fabric of our beautiful building - and to keep our doors open to allow both worship to continue, and visitors to explore our magnificent cathedral.

About the charity

We raise funds through our own endeavours and through the generosity of our visitors, congregation, and friends. Your donations ensure Chester Cathedral is preserved for future generations.
