How you can support us

Make a Donation

Your donation and support makes a difference.

With no government funding we are increasingly dependent on the generosity of our supporters and those who visit us. Every donation we receive large or small will go towards the most pressing work at the moment, that could be stopping leaks, clearing guttering, delivering outreach and education, supporting choristers or conserving the Chapter House.

Southwell Minster is a registered charity. You can donate online with JustGiving.

Every donation we receive makes a difference and ensures we remain free to enter and available for future generations. Whether it’s a one off donation or if you give regularly the Dean and Chapter thank you for your support.

New Choir & Clergy Robes Appeal

Choir singers at Southwell MinsterServices have been sung in Southwell Minster for centuries, and the traditional robes worn by our choir and clergy are looking a little shabby. Our appeal is to renew the robes in use and adopt a uniform style of dress for both the boys and girls.

Donors are being invited to make a donation to the campaign of any amount, or to sponsor what it costs to kit out a chorister, Lay Clerk/organist or member of clergy.

£250 would equip a Child chorister, £415 an Older chorister (adult sizes)
£590 would equip a Lay Clerk/Organist,
£815 Clergy

Find out more and donate to the Robes appeal online with JustGiving.

Alternatively, donations can be made by cheque, made payable to Southwell Cathedral Chapter and sent to the Minster Centre (address below) or handed to a verger. Please quote "Choir robe appeal" on the back of the cheque.

We receive no government funding, and rely on donations and legacy gifts to continue our work. Every legacy we receive, however large or small makes a valuable contribution to all that we do.
