The National Trust is awaiting the 2021 budget to continue its support for the completion of the restoration of the St. George’s Cathedral, according to its Chief Executive Officer Nirvana Persaud.
When contacted, Persaud told Stabroek News that the National Trust is in full support of preservation of St. George’s Cathedral. However, in regards to funding, she said that decision is still pending. She noted that the Trust has been a part of the previous projects and will happily contribute to the restoration of the roof but until the 2021 budget is passed, it is unsure of how much could be funded to the project.
A source familiar with the restoration has told this newspaper that the cathedral is currently working toward getting funds and hopes that the National Trust can continue its support as it was very supportive in the first two phases of the restoration.
