Anglican appeal nets $350 000


Share post:

Only $350 000 of the targeted $7.5 million has been raised so far in an appeal for funds to assist with the restoration of the St Michael and All Angels Cathedral, the main church of the Anglican congregation in Barbados.
The fund-raising drive was officially launched in August and chairman of the Diocesan Trustees of the Anglican Church, Dr Hartley Richards, admitted the response was “a bit slow”.
Richards said account No. 1000035106 had been opened at FirstCaribbean Bank for public donations.
He said the money raised so far was being used to begin repairs on the Chancel roof, knave and back tower, work which is currently in progress as part of Phase One.
Architect Robert O’Neal of Design Collaborative said the entire project could take at least three years, providing the funds were available.  (GC)
