Help us raise £29,000 to replace our choir and clergy robes

Our choir fill the Cathedral with glorious music six days a week and we want them to wear robes that reflect the high level of sacred music sung in the Cathedral, and also when they are on tour. When the Girls Choir was started over ten years ago, the girls wore a different style and colour of gown rather than the classic chorister cassock and surplice. The time has come to dress all choir members consistently so that we don't differentiate between boy and girl choristers. We want to give a one team' message through the way clergy and the choir dress and the new robes will be a smart maroon colour.

Donors are being invited to make a donation to the Appeal of any amount, or to sponsor what it costs to kit out a chorister, Lay Clerk/organist or member of clergy.

£250 would equip a Child chorister, £415 an Older chorister (adult sizes)

£590 would equip a Lay Clerk/Organist,

£815 Clergy
