We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded £146,900 as part of the Cultural Recovery Heritage Fund to assist with the implementation of plans for the future sustainability of the cathedral and our thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Historic England and government for this funding.
Speaking about the announcement, Dean of Truro, Roger Bush, said, “The impact of Covid on nearly every institution has been marked and serious. For us at Truro Cathedral, it meant an almost complete drying up of certain sources of income, and whilst we have been utilising our resources wherever we can to get us through this challenging time, the award of the CRF grant has given us a real boost in responding to that challenge with more confidence. The cathedral has been open to the public since mid-June, and services have been taking place there since the summer. As a beacon of hope in uncertain times, the cathedral has a hugely important role to play in the life of our community, and, assisted by the CRF, we are confident we can be that beacon of hope for many years to come. We are deeply grateful of the support shown to us by the Foundation; we are sure we will be worthy of that trust.”
