Dio­cese of Bath & Wells

The Church of England - - NEWS -

An anony­mous bene­fac­tor has given £1.5 mil­lion for the Foot­print re­pairs project for Bath Abbey.

The anony­mous donor said: “Much im­pressed by the care and the con­sul­ta­tion that has been put in by the Abbey, which is such a vi­tal part of Bath’s fu­ture.

“This gen­er­a­tion has a solemn duty to en­sure the Abbey is fit and able to carry out its ser­vice to the city and the com­mu­nity for the next hun­dred years.”

Laura Brown, Foot­print Ap­peal Direc­tor, said: “We are very grate­ful for this amazingly gen­er­ous gift from one re­mark­able in­di­vid­ual. It came in an or­di­nary-look­ing en­ve­lope, with­out pomp or fan­fare, but the con­tents were just as­tound­ing.”
