Leaving a gift in your will

Leaving a gift in your will

For the miracle is that this Cathedral was conceived and built by ordinary men and women like ourselves.  And it is our responsibility to hand on that inheritance into the future.

– Victor De Waal, Dean of Canterbury (1977)

Create a lasting link with your Cathedral

Leaving a legacy to Canterbury Cathedral is one of the greatest gifts you can give; it will help ensure the future of the Cathedral for generations to come.

We have a responsibility to ensure the traditions of choral music, lifelong learning and excellence in craft skills begun by our ancestors are continued here at Canterbury Cathedral now, and for the future.

If you are thinking of writing, or making changes to, your will we would be delighted if you would consider leaving a gift to Canterbury Cathedral. Your bequest would make an incredible difference to the long-term sustainability of this special place and would help ensure the work started in your lifetime is continued into the future – engaging, teaching and being improved upon by new generations.

If you are thinking of leaving us a legacy and would like further information please contact or 01227 865343.

Thank you.
