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.”
