Running for Cathedral Music

We’re raising money to transform the former café into Salford Cathedral’s first ever ‘Song School’ – a dedicated space for music education and rehearsal for our Cathedral Choirs.

We’ve assembled a team of 22 Cathedral Runners to run a collective 125km at Media City on Thursday 27 June. Our runners include choir members, parents, staff, and members of the congregation – from experienced parkrunners to those doing couch-5k.

Cathedral Director of Music, Alex Patterson, took part in a similar run back in April to launch the appeal and the Cathedral Runners have been training over the last few months to get ready for the run.

Your support will help us kick start the transformation of this space so we can invest in things like reading desks, whiteboards, music folders, shelving and proper storage space. These things will help us maximise the opportunities for the children and young people of Salford to fulfil their musical potential as part of our Cathedral Music Foundation.
