Sponsor a Chorister

Could you support our long tradition of choral music and provide our choristers with a unique musical education that will last them a lifetime?

Help us keep music at the heart of all the Cathedral does.

Carlisle Cathedral

Every year, music is provided at over 220 services sung by the choristers, with over 280 hours of rehearsals. The annual cost for this is £180,000.

With your support, we can keep the tradition of child choristerships alive and bring the gift of music to the lives of talented young people.

Your Gift

For just £20 a month, or £240 a year, you can help secure over 900 years of musical heritage for the future.

Please download our leaflet to find out more about the scheme.

If you would like to become a chorister sponsor, please complete the form on the downloadable leaflet and return to the Head of Fundraising. It is also possible to donate £240 or the monthly £20 gift to the chorister sponsorship scheme online:
