Benefactors’ reception

Tuesday 12th September 2017

St Paul’s Cathedral

The Benevolent Fund makes an annual donation to the St Paul’s Cathedral Foundation for the Collections and the Clerk and I were invited to a reception, sponsored by Pol Roger to view some of the Cathedral’s treasures and say good bye to Roger Walkinton, who is leaving the Cathedral to take up a new post. The exhibits were set out in the North and South Quire Aisles with copes, mitres and other garments in the north and silver collection plates in the south. It was a wonderful opportunity to explore the Quire and High Altar which, for ordinary mortals, are visible in the distance during services. In the Crypt, we enjoyed some excellent canapes and the sponsor’s delightful white foil NV. A special evening.
