The Friends of Wells Cathedral are raising funds for the rebuilding of the Cathedral's Great Organ. The Organ was last refurbished about fifty years ago and is is in need of considerable works.
In 1974, the Friends contributed the case to the Organ. This time the Friend's have committed to raising the full funds for the rebuild.
The Friends have a record of funding significant projects at Wells Cathedral including the works to the Chapter Hosue in the 1980s, the biggest project by a cathedral friends association at the time. More recently, the Friends funded the Friends' Building, which contains education rooms and the Cathedral's Song School.
We hope you will feel able to support this Appeal generously. We are grateful for any contributions.
The Friends of Wells Cathedral, founded in 1933, support the life and work of the Cathedral.
This includes more than the fabric of the building with grants being made to support different departments and projects.
The biggest Friends’ project was to provide the £1.8m to build for the Friends’ Building (off the East Cloister) which houses the Cathedral Song School, Education Rooms and, last but not least, Toilets.
The Friends have long been associated with publications and continue fund guides books about the Cathedral.
Recently the Friends' funded the replacement of the Cathedral's central heating boilers. Many smaller projects are funded each year.
