The government has announced a thirty million pound fund to help churches cope with the VAT changes that were announced in the budget.
From October this year the Treasury will charge VAT at 20% on alterations to listed buildings, which are currently exempt from the tax. Wakefield Cathedral had protested against it as they worried they wouldn't have enough money to finish their refurbishments.
Seven year old Sophie, who wants to follow in her family's footsteps by getting married at the Cathedral, delivered a letter against the new tax to Downing Street on Monday. She has welcomed the announcement. We have also been speaking to the Very Reverend Jonathan Greener, the Dean of Wakefield.
