Authors support the chapel restoration

A literary dinner has raised over £26,000 for the renovation of Trinity’s chapel.

The inspiration for the evening came from writer Justin Cartwright (1965), who was joined by Joanna Trollope, Lady Selina Hastings and Professor Margaret MacMillan. During the dinner, all four authors read from one of their recent works.

Over coffee, an auction was held to raise funds for the chapel, with auction lots including the chance to spend a day cooking with Trinity’s head chef, an invitation to turn on the new lighting in the chapel, when it reopens next year, and a dinner in the college’s Old Bursary.

The event proved to be enormously popular with Old Members, Friends and their guests. Trinity is very grateful to the authors and all who attended for their support of the chapel.
