Thank you to everyone who has generously supported Open Treasure to date.

This includes members of the Cathedral community who have responded to our public appeal and everyone who has bought a brick to help build Durham Cathedral in Lego.

We would especially like to thank:

Heritage Lottery Fund for its £3.9 million grant award.

Journalist and broadcaster Jeremy Vine, and architect and television presenter George Clarke for being Open Treasure Champions.
