Lichfield Cathedral granted £800,000 for lighting and rewiring repairs
- Created: 26 March 2015
Lichfield Cathedral has been named as one of 31 cathedrals to receive a grant from government-sponsored scheme, the First World War Centenary Cathedral Repairs Fund.
The fund was set up to support vital repairs to some of England’s most important historic buildings, and today Chancellor George Osborne has announced grants of between £12,000 and £800,000 for essential repairs.
Lichfield will receive £800,000, the largest of the grants, to go towards their next big fundraising development, the lighting and rewiring project. The Cathedral was facing the possibility of closure without the essential work.
