"Adopt a Gargoyle" in aid of Lichfield Cathedral

The project is in aid of the East End Appeal for Lichfield Cathedral, which has undergone a major programme of essential repairs to its stonework and conservation of its unique 16th century painted glass. The project is now in its final phases and to help raise the balance of the money for the restoration work, Lichfield Cathedral, in partnership with the Lichfield Diocesan Board of Education, is asking for support from schools for the East End Appeal via the Adopt a Gargoyle project.

The Gargoyle campaign is designed to be educational and fun and to stimulate imagination and donations.


There are two competitions as part of the project:

‘What is my name?’, where pupils can name the newly carved gargoyles

‘My Story’, where pupils can draw or write about a Cathedral gargoyle.


Once the new deadline for competition entries has passed on 31 March 2012, a panel will judge and prizes will include tea at Chapters Restaurant and a ceremony at the Cathedral to celebrate the pupil’s achievements.
