Gloucester Cathedral
December 2017

Friday 1st December 2017 Tower lit purple for 16 Days of Action Campaign The Cathedral Tower will be lit Purple in support of 16 Days of Action for Domestic Violence

Monday 27 November – Friday 1 December

16 Days of action against domestic violence – The campaign

16 Days of Action Against Domestic Violence is aimed at businesses to support them to take action against domestic abuse and violence. Employers have a legal obligation to assess dynamic risk and support the health and safety and wellness of their employees. Companies can do more to aid their employees who endure domestic violence, to train those who witness it, and to protect staff as a whole, with the goal of securing safety and mitigating financial loss. Spanning across 16 days from 25th November to 10th December, a theme will be identified each day to explore the various forms of domestic violence. In doing so, the workplace will be better equipped to acknowledge the signs that indicate it may be going on.

Sunday 3 December - Sunday 7 January 2018

This Christmas, Gloucester Cathedral will be inviting visitors to take part in its ‘Tree of Stars’ fundraising campaign.

From Sunday 3 December, wooden decorative stars will be available to purchase for £5 from the Cathedral Gift Shop, upon which a message or wish may be written before hanging the star on a dedicated tree within the Cathedral. Visitors who leave a Star on the tree will then be given the opportunity to light a candle in remembrance, hope or thanksgiving, to be placed as part of a special display with the beautiful tree.

The stars will be available to take home in the new year as a special keepsake and all proceeds from the stars will go towards maintaining the Cathedral for future generations.
