Baldwins Accountants announced as the headline sponsor for central tower reopening

07 May 2019

Durham Cathedral are proud to announce that the official sponsor for the reopening of the tower on Saturday 1 June 2019 are Baldwins Accountants.

Baldwins Accountants are a gold level corporate partner of the cathedral, having joined in 2014: first as 995 Club members supporting our Open Treasure project and then as 2020 Club members when we launched our Foundation 2020 campaign to create a £10 million endowment fund for essential maintenance work.

They are one of the fastest growing accountancy firms in the UK, offering a variety of professional accounting, tax and business advisory services. With 11 offices throughout the North East, the team work with clients across a wide range of industries, helping them achieve their business goals. Baldwins prides itself on being a champion of the region’s business community.

David Baldwin, Board Director at Baldwins Accountants, said: ‘I’m delighted that we are sponsoring the re-opening of the Tower.  It’s so important that we all work together to preserve iconic buildings such as Durham Cathedral for future generations.  As a business, we’re passionate about working with local communities and organisations to protect our historic and cultural sites and we look forward to working with Durham Cathedral for many years to come.’

Matthew Kirk, Relationship and Development Manager at Durham Cathedral, said: ‘After several years of essential repairs the Central Tower will once again be open for our local communities and visitors from further afield to ascend. We count it as a privilege to be working closely with Baldwins yet again, this time as the official sponsors for the re-opening of the Central Tower. Their sponsorship will go a long way towards helping us keep our doors open, visitors happy and repair work on track. We are very thankful for the relationships we have with local businesses like Baldwins and are excited for the opportunity the Tower re-opening provides to showcase what they do and how their business has enormous potential to help the North East.’
