Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Rochester Cathedral has a ring of 10 bells that were cast in 1921. To ensure their future there are essential works that need to be carried out. We would like to combine this with an augmentation making the Cathedral a rare ring of 12 in the Rochester District. This will better allow us to continue our work as a teaching tower encouraging young and old from all backgrounds to come and learn. It will also encourage visiting ringers as the appeal of a ring of 12 is irresistible! There are lots of ways to contribute from a small donation here to sponsoring a bell - we will be buying three new ones! Our overall target is around £100,000 and we would like to ring the new bells for the first time in 2021 to celebrate the centenary of the casting of the current ring. Please find it in your heart to help us to maintain a long tradition of ringing in Rochester and to make the Cathedral bells a sound to be enjoyed for many years to come.

Thank you
The Rochester Cathedral Company of Bell Ringers
