Friends

Members of the Friends are drawn from across the Diocese and beyond, as well as from the Cathedral congregation, all linked by a unity of purpose in wanting to help care for this wonderful building, which has been standing for over thirteen hundred years, and its fabric which includes priceless William Morris windows, embroidery by Ernest Sichel and woodcarving by Chris Shawcross.

The aims of the Friends of Bradford Cathedral are to:

- Bring together in fellowship people who care for the Cathedral

- Support the Cathedral and its staff through prayer

- Help raise funds for special projects, eg Artspace

- Contribute to upkeep and maintenance
