The Perpetual Trust was founded in order to help ensure that there is funding available to support the ongoing restoration of the cathedral, ensure the financial security of the choir and to support the Chapter to deliver projects. The Trust is a registered charity and is registered with the fundraising regulator. 

Through the generosity of our supporters and funders, the Perpetual Trust have been able to deliver a range of projects including:

  • The restoration of the historic Willis organ
  • Restoration of Cathedral Close and St John Walk
  • Offering Stonemason apprenticeships
  • Development of the Tudor and Pilgrimage workshops for school’s groups
  • Support the choir and choristers

Who's Who?

The Perpetual Trust is made up of a small team that work in the Hereford Cathedral offices:

Chief Executive - Glyn Morgan MBE 

Events Co-ordinator - Erica Manley

Fundraising & Project Support - Hannah McSherry 

How can you help?

Each year the Trust needs to raise a minimum of £500,000 to support the annual running of the Cathedral. We work hard to raise additional funds for capital repairs and to build a long term investment fund to support the Cathedral in years to come. In order to raise this level of funding we rely on the support of individuals, legacies, grants and fundraising events.
