Did you know that Truro Cathedral are currently raising funds to replace their whole roof? The original roof which was completed in 1908, is now in urgent need of repair. It’s going to cost a whopping £3.2 million to replace and over 60,000 slates to preserve the cathedral for future generations!
To raise money for the campaign, the cathedral have created a unique opportunity for people to support the conservation project and leave a lasting message for future generations to come. ‘How?’ we hear you cry. By asking people to donate to the cathedral, and in return they’ll be able to ‘Sign A Slate’ to go on the roof. It’s a great way to wish someone a happy birthday, remember a loved one or even propose!
Set in the heart of our only city here in Cornwall, Truro Cathedral is a precious landmark which is why Seasalt is very happy to announce that we’ve signed up to be a VIP sponsor.
Our Marketing Director, Emma set the team a challenge to design a slate and chose three winners to enjoy an extra special VIP signing experience with the Dean.
Last night the lucky winners Sam, Miranda and Lisa, hopped on the train from Falmouth to Truro and made their way to the cathedral, where they enjoyed bubbly & canapés, met the Dean and signed their slates.
The ladies had a great time and helped put their mark on the project. Their slates will be positioned on the east side of the cathedral so keep an eye out for them!
