The ‘Light up an Angel’ appeal is back at Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral with a new star design, following the success of last year’s event, which saw more than 100 angel decorations lit up on its Christmas tree.

Visitors can have a name or message inscribed onto their glass decoration, which will be placed on a lit tree in the Cathedral throughout the Christmas period. They will receive a certificate and can take their decoration home to keep in the New Year.

In return, people are being asked for a donation of £30 for an angel or £50 for a star, which helps keep the Cathedral free to visitors, funds choral music at Christmas and throughout the year and goes towards the general upkeep of the building.

Tina Morris, Cathedral Fundraising Manager, said: “We were overwhelmed last Christmas by the amount of heartfelt good wishes that appeared on the angels. Visitors bought them for mums, dads, nans and granddads, children, grandchildren, soldiers, not to mention loved ones who were no longer with us.

“Every time a visitor donates to the angel appeal we can take another bucket away when it rains. Please order as soon as possible, as we only have a limited number of stars and angels available.”

To light up an angel or star pick up a form from the cathedral or call 0151 702 7226.
