Women across the city are being urged to donate unwanted items of jewellery as part of a fundraising campaign in aid of Lichfield Cathedral.

The Treasure for Treasure is taking place on September 11 from 1.30pm with the aim of helping to save the historic Lady Chapel windows.

A spokesperson for the event said:

“The day is a celebration of womanhood – the opportunity to give away a special treasure and be part of an act of worship and period of reflection on memories, love, relationships and life’s experience.

“It might be jewellery from a previous relationship or an item inherited or passed from a relative or friend. The jewellery will help fund the urgent conservation and repair of the windows and there will be a Service of Thanksgiving at 2.30pm to celebrate the good days and happiness the jewellery represents.”
