The Friends of Lancaster Cathedral was founded in 2006 as a group intended to help raise money for the maintenance of the Cathedral. Every year thousands of people pass through the Cathedral’s doors, yet the burden of maintaining this fine church has always fallen almost exclusively on the Cathedral’s parishioners. Now everyone who supports the work of the Cathedral can help.
