Friends of Derby Cathedral

The Friends of Derby Cathedral form a network of support for the work of the Cathedral, care of the fabric, the improvement of facilities and help towards maintaining the heritage of the building.

Through subscriptions, legacies, donations and fund raising events, the Friends provide money which is then used for approved Cathedral projects.  Friends receive newsletters informing of projects to support, invitations to events and an annual report.

Inclusion is important to us, so plans are being made to broadcast concerts and recitals from the Cathedral so they can be made available to all Friends no matter where they live.

The Friends arrange visits to other cathedrals and churches and other places of interest.

The Friends have funded many projects for the Cathedral including refurbishment and maintenance of woodwork and silver-ware, purchasing robes and cassocks,  and a water fountain for the Song School.  A recent grant from the Friends has been made towards the procurement of a new Advent candle stand.
