"People from across the world love Durham Cathedral.  It is an iconic building, with an unmistakeable presence in our landscape.  Neither the Cathedral's historic fabric nor our ministry of service could be maintained without the generosity of patrons.  Making a gift, of any size, will help us to safeguard a treasure of the nation's Christian heritage, to continue serving local communities, and to strengthen our economy by attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors and pilgrims each year.  If you would like to become part of our 1000-year-old story, I would be delighted to hear from you." - Matthew Mills, Relationship & Development Manager
