Over 70 of the city’s business leaders gathered for breakfast at the Pump Room to find out more about the Abbey’s 19.3 million Footprint project and the benefits of supporting the fundraising appeal. The project had earlier this year received earmarked funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for a 10 million grant provided the Abbey is able to raise an additional 7 million to make up the balance of the funding by 2016.
