You could help buy a hop­per

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

ThE cathe­dral wants to put a to­tal of 40 hop­pers on to the down­pipes on the roof.

These will in­crease ca­pac­ity by stor­ing any wa­ter­fall so that the pipes have longer to drain the wa­ter away. These hop­pers cost £2,500 to have made and in­stalled.

Any in­di­vid­u­als, or­gan­i­sa­tions or com­pa­nies who pay for a hop­per will have their ini­tials in­scribed on the hop­per and their gift will be recorded in the cathe­dral’s Ar­chive of Gen­er­ous Bene­fac­tors.

Canon Richard Cat­tle said: “It’s the sort of thing that an or­gan­i­sa­tion can club to­gether and raise the money for each one.”

how­ever, he said smaller do­na­tions would also be “won­der­fully re­ceived”.

The ben­e­fit of the ap­peal is that the cathe­dral does not have to raise the whole amount in or­der start work. As soon as they have enough for three or four hop­pers they will be made and in­stalled and each one will help al­le­vi­ate the po­ten­tial prob­lem.

Canon Cat­tle said: “What­ever the re­sponse and how­ever long it takes we are help­ing to deal with the sit­u­a­tion.”
