Gorton Monastery has received a £1m donation.

The donation from The Stoller Charitable Trust to the Monastery of St.
Francis & Gorton Trust is the most significant pledge of financial support by a private benefactor in the form of a £1million donation.

The announcement was made at Gorton Monastery as The Stoller Charitable Trust’s founder, Norman Stoller CBE, former Oldham businessman and philanthropist, celebrated his 80th birthday with family and friends at the weekend.
