The Friends of Ely Cathedral

The Friends of Ely Cathedral is a worldwide group of people who choose to support, and keep in touch with, our amazing 'Ship of the Fens'.

There are currently about 2,000 Friends. As a registered charity the organisation raises much needed funds by subscriptions, donations, legacies and events. These are used to help maintain and support our great Cathedral and enable it to continue inspiring both visitors and worshippers. New members are always very welcome.

In recent years 'The Friends' of Ely Cathedral have paid for many projects including the re-ordered Lady Chapel altar and reredos, 'The Way of Life' sculpture, the new choir stalls, additional chairs, restoration of an antique altar frontal, renovation of the Processional Way Toilets, the upgrade of the Cathedral website, provision of the new Cathedral kitchen and the development of the Ely cathedral App.
