Here at Stamford Stone, we are pleased to be able to support worthwhile causes in our community and are glad to be helping the Peterborough 900 campaign. The campaign aims to raise funds for Peterborough Cathedral, ensuring ambitious plans for this historic building can become a reality, and culminates in 2018, with a celebration of the 900th anniversary of the start of this important building.
Peterborough 900 aims to develop facilities for education, including the provision of a new Heritage and Education centre, visitors, music and worship, and the money raised will help the cathedral to continue its work in the future. Since the campaign began in 2011, a new sound system has been installed for the enjoyment of all and enough funds have been secured for the re-pitching of the 19th century Hill organ.
In aid of these exciting plans, on the 9th of July Emma Ireland, Steve Green, Andrew Jeffery, Jim Spry, Steve Walker, Alan Sleight, Nik Swift, Patryk Wajgert, Michael Korgovskij, Ernie Karanda, Simon Jeakins, Richard Hall, Ian Moules and Tom Laughton will abseil 150 feet down Peterborough Cathedral.
They are hoping to raise as much money as possible and would appreciate any donations, big or small.
