English Cathedrals receive no regular funding from the Government or the Church of England towards maintenance, restoration and development work.

Here at Wells that means we have to raise £4,500 per day which we must do through our own endeavours and with the help of our visitors, congregation, supporters, The Friends of Wells Cathedral and grant making trusts.

Donations, both large and small, have ensured that the Cathedral remains open seven days a week free of charge to those who seek comfort and spiritual and cultural nourishment. You too can help maintain this Cathedral for future generations by donating as either an individual or a grant-giving body.
