Cathedral congregation give to good causes

Rennie Grove Hospice Care was one of over 50 local charities to benefit from St AlbansRennie Grove & Lucy Hutchins and Clare Joyce with The Very Reverend Dr Jeffrey John Cathedral’s annual congregational giving presentation at the deanery on Sunday May 14. 

As part of the Cathedral’s contribution to the community, 10% of donations made by the congregation throughout the year is distributed to good causes.  Thanks to the generosity of the cathedral-goers, this amounts to more than £50,000 each year. 

The Very Reverend Dr Jeffrey John, Dean of St Albans Cathedral, handed over the cheques at a garden party at the deanery on Sunday, where representatives from the chosen charities enjoyed tea and cake in the spring sunshine.

Rennie Grove was delighted to receive £1,000 – enough to fund 40 hours of specialist nursing care at Grove House or in patients’ homes.
