A local church is hosting a £100,000 fundraiser to help accommodate its £1.8m restoration project.
St Machar’s Cathedral was built between 1380 to 1520 and is Aberdeen’s oldest building to still be in active use; attracting over 27,000 visitors a year.
It is a huge part of Aberdonian history, with some of the remains of William Wallace being held in one of its twin towers.
The church also has a 500-year old oak ceiling, 48 heraldic shields among many other important historic features and relics.
However, after long-term neglect, the building is going into disrepair.
Most of the donations from the fundraiser will be used to help pay for the new roof; which has not been replaced since 1867.
£2,340 has been raised out of the £100,000 target so far. For more information and to donate to the cause go to: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/StMacharRaiseTheRoof.
