Cathedral Restoration Appeal App - an innovative way to raise funds

The Cathedral Restoration Committee responsible for raising money to fund the repairs of the Cathedral, have an innovative app available that allows people to donate to the project by buying ‘bricks’ in a ‘virtual tower’, as well as discovering information about the Cathedral and its diverse history.

The Cathedral Restoration Appeal app is available free of charge at the App Store and at Google Play. It gives people the opportunity to donate to the cause at various levels.
