Who are the Friends of Wells Cathedral?

The Friends of Wells Cathedral was founded in 1933 and there are now Friends across the globe. The Friends support the Chapter of Wells in the of maintenance of the fabric, life and work of the Cathedral. The Friends have contributed to projects big and small, relating to the building and to departments within the Cathedral Foundation.
