We are nearing our Raise the Roof target of £750,000, which will enable us to start work in early 2017 to make St Ninian’s Cathedral watertight. This amount has been achieved through the hard work of many members of the congregation, the generosity of donors and the funding bodies who have responded to our requests for Grants.
‘Buy a Slate’ is our last official fund- raiser for this year – and if all 10,000 slates get sold, we’ll reach our target. If you would like to buy a slate (or several) in memory , for example, of departed loved ones. We shall eventually put together a restoration project folder which will include a drawing of the roof with requested names on the slates , so when you visit the cathedral you will be able to identify the bit of the roof that you helped purchase!
Of course, this is only Phase 1 of our Restoration Project, so look out for more fund-raising efforts in the coming year, as we continue to raise money for Phase 2.
