Adopt a gargoyle!

Adopt-A-Gargoyle? Yes, that’s exactly what you can do at Lichfield Cathedral. 

This rather original fund-raising wheeze has apparently been very successful, as the organisers have extended the scheme until the end of the month as young people rush to get their names associated with one.
The sub-text is that it’s about educating schools about the decoration of the historic church – but let’s face it, we all love a gargoyle.

The one in the photo is my favourite in Staffordshire. He’s not on Lichfield Cathedral sadly, he’s at Blymhill Church. Still, I’d adopt him if I were given the chance.
