Sponsor A Chorister

Music plays an integral role in the life and worship of the cathedral. Imagine a silent cathedral; no choir to sing carols at Christmas and all services being said. The end of a 1,300-year-old choral tradition. Without your generosity, this could happen.

Sponsor a Chorister £150 a year/£12.50 a month
Sponsor a Lay Clerk £150 a year/£12.50 a month
Sponsor a Week of Music £500 a year/£42 a month

In return for your sponsorship:

  • You will receive an invitation to a private reception and musical event with the choir each year.
  • You will have other opportunities to hear the choir sing throughout the year.
  • Your name will be recorded in a specially commissioned book each year which will be on display at the annual Benefactors’ Service.

A week in the musical life of the cathedral can be sponsored for £500 per year in the dedication of your choice.

In recognition of your dedication or sponsorship:

  • Your name or company logo will appear on the weekly service sheets as the sponsor of the week of music
  • You will be invited to attend an annual private reception and Evensong
  • Your name will be recorded in a specially commissioned book which will be on display at the annual Benefactors’ Service.

Legacy

We would very much appreciate your leaving an unrestricted gift because we will be able to use it wherever we believe it would have the greatest impact. But if there is something of special significance for you, then you might choose to leave it to benefit our music, the fabric of the cathedral or our learning activities. Alternatively, a Lifelong Legacy gift of £10,000 or more will enrol you as a St Peter Patron during your lifetime.

 

Please contact Margaret Hammond at margarethammond@riponcathedral.org.uk for more information.
