Donate to blackburn cathedral

Donations & legacies

It costs a lot to keep the Cathedral running, we are grateful that you want to give a donation or leave a legacy to ensure the work of the Cathedral.

The Cathedral is open every day and most evenings, to accommodate daily worship, host of events, exhibitions, tours and over activities. The Cathedral is used by all sorts of groups in and around Blackburn throughout the year.

Just to keep the Cathedral running requires nearly a million pounds every year. And an enormous building like this costs a great deal more in maintenance and repair work.

We continue to be grateful for the generosity of those who support our work, but as costs continually rise, we need to encourage all who have an interest in what we stand for to help us.

Regular Giving by Direct Debit 

If you would like to support our mission and maintain our beautiful historic building, set up a direct debit through the Parish Giving Scheme found here. Our Parish Code is: 030603001 

Gift Aid

For every £10 given by taxpayers to the Cathedral, we can reclaim £2.50 from the Inland Revenue, increasing the value of your gift to £12.50. For a full explanation of the scheme and a Gift Aid form, please email: [email protected] 


Details and a guide to writing your will to reflect your Christian Faith can be found on the Church of England website.
