UHY Torgersens has become a partner of Foundation 2020, an initiative established by Durham Cathedral with an aim to build a £10 million endowment by the year 2020.
Foundation 2020 aims to support the annual cycle of planned maintenance and repair of the cathedral’s buildings to ensure they are safeguarded for future generations to enjoy. To kick start the campaign, the Heritage Lottery Fund has awarded a grant of £1 million to the fund which is available to match donations on a 1:1 basis, so every £1 donated is doubled.
Paul McMahon, partner at UHY Torgersens said: ‘We love visiting the cathedral and find it to be one of the places we can completely switch off from everyday pressures. Having toured the cathedral recently we have been given an insight into what it takes to maintain the buildings. A huge day-to-day challenge which means planning for the long term is a must. UHY Torgersens is proud to support Foundation 2020 and we hope that the current ease of access to the cathedral to all visitors continues long into the future.’
