Cathedral donates £5000 to charities...

St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds, has been able to give nearly £5000 to charity, thanks to two events which the Cathedral hosted recently.

From 10 to 14 December the Cathedral held its second Christmas Tree Festival. 24 charities decorated trees and some of the Cathedral’s own children’s groups added another 6 trees to make a beautiful spectacle in the Cloisters. Hundreds of visitors came to see the trees and donated generously, resulting in £2400 being split between the participating charities, which included many local charities, supporting children, the elderly and those in extreme need.

On Saturday 13 December, amidst readings and music led by the Cathedral choirs, the work of the Children’s Society was profiled at the annual Carols by Candlelight service. At the service just over £2400 was raised which will be given to the Children’s Society, a charity which, through its campaigning, commitment and care, gives vulnerable children the greatest possible chance in life.

‘We are pleased that people have supported these two events so generously, enabling us to pass on that generosity to charities, whose work will help the vulnerable and those in need,’ comments Sarah Friswell, PR Manager at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.
