Steadfast Group help secure Durham Cathedral’s future by joining Foundation 2020

11 June 2019

North East security solutions firm, The Steadfast Group, have recently joined Durham Cathedral’s 2020 Club. 


The Steadfast Group have provided their customers with peace of mind through professional and precise security solutions, systems and services for the past 25 years.


By joining the 2020 Club and supporting the Foundation 2020 campaign they are helping to secure the finances Durham Cathedral needs to take care of its historic buildings for generations to come. 


Mike McGaun, Business Development Manager at The Steadfast Group said: “Durham Cathedral has been an icon of the North East and a symbol of hope to the region for almost 1,000 years and we understand that North East Businesses, like ours, can only benefit from supporting such an important and magnificent local building.”


Matthew Kirk, Relationship and Development Manager at Durham Cathedral welcomed their support. He said: “The Steadfast Group are helping to preserve centuries of heritage and culture in Durham, so that future generations can enjoy our cathedral, as we do today. Their support of our Foundation 2020 campaign will literally have an impact every year until the end of time.”


Foundation 2020 is Durham Cathedral’s public campaign to create a £10million endowment fund. The interest generated from this fund each year will cover all of its routine maintenance costs. Thanks to pound for pound match funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund the 2020 campaign is having an even greater impact, meaning that for every £250 donated to the 2020 fund, the Cathedral receives £500.
