The Friends of Derby Cathedral was founded in 1942 to form a network of support for the work of the Cathedral, care of the fabric, the improvement of facilities and help towards the musical contribution to its worship.
Through subscriptions, membership donations and fund raising events, the Friends provide money which is then used for approved Cathedral projects. Friends receive a periodic newsletter and annual report and a yearly festival is held in the Cathedral.
Each year the Friends arrange a number of visits to other cathedrals and churches and other places of interest. Recent grants from the Friends have supported work on vestments, furniture repairs, and silver restoration.
The annual subscription rates are:
- Personal £10
- Joint £15
- PCC £20
- Life £200
- Joint Life £250
