Thank you for supporting the ‘Treasure for Treasure’ fundraising event held on Saturday 4th May at Peterborough Cathedral, in collaboration with Hansons Auctioneers.
It has taken some time for all the items donated to go through various auction sales, but I am delighted to tell you that this process has now concluded, and a total of just over £4,300 was raised from the proceeds. £2,800 of this will be donated to the Cathedral, with £1,500 spread between the various parish churches designated by donors. Gift Aid on many of the donations will of course add a further 25% in some cases.
The relevant Parish Treasurers have been contacted already, and the funds due to them are in the process of being paid by the Cathedral.
We are most grateful to Charles Hanson and his colleagues for their generosity in waiving their commission and charges, but most of all to you and other donors who gave their items and contributed to this splendid total. Your support for your Diocesan Cathedral and your parish church is very much appreciated.
The Very Revd Chris Dalliston
Dean of Peterborough
