The Big Give Christmas Challenge: Help to Remember the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars

Tuesday 28 November to Tuesday 5 December 2017

Could you help raise £30,000 in just 7 days to carry out essential repairs to the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars War Memorial?

Join in with The Big Give Christmas Challenge between Tuesday 28 November to Tuesday 5 December 2017 to DOUBLE the value of your donation.

Click here to donate and help to Remember the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars.

Gloucester Cathedral is taking part in an online fundraising challenge between 28 November and 5 December. The Big Give Christmas Challenge provides a unique opportunity to DOUBLE the value of all donations as every pound given will be matched by independent supporters.

All donations made online during the Challenge will go towards repairing the Grade 2* listed War Memorial dedicated to the soldiers of the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars.

This important project will ensure that one of the county’s most important landmarks continues to stand as a testament to the local people who lost their lives in the World Wars as well as improving its setting within the Cathedral grounds. Crucially, it will also mean the memorial is restored in time for World War One Centenary commemorations in 2018.

No matter how much you give, it will be worth twice as much if you donate at the right time! You can also Gift Aid your donation, making it worth even more. 

To make your donation, from 12noon on 28 November until 12noon on 5 December simply go to: 

If you would like to make a donation but do not have access to the internet or a computer, we would be more than happy to help you. Get in touch by calling 01452 874963 and we will make arrangements for you to come into the Cathedral Office where we will help you through the process. All you need is an email address and your credit or debit card.

For more information about the Challenge or an email reminder on the day, please contact Theo Platt on 01452 874963 or at

Thank you for your support towards this important cause.
