The Museum’s Development Campaign was always planned in two phases. The first phase was to provide matching funding for our Heritage Lottery Fund Grant, so as to cover the building costs of our expansion and redesign. This we have achieved on time and on target. The second phase is to provide a sustainable basis for the future stability and growth of the Museum. Of major importance is the creation of a new Endowment Fund to help underpin the Museum’s work in the years ahead. Our target is raise £5m over the next 5 years. Donations of £10,000 and over will be permanently acknowledged in the Museum.
