This campaign will enable : - the transformation of Kensington Palace - the re-presentation and conservation of the White Tower at the Tower of London - the re-presentation of the Jewel House at the Tower of London - the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of Henry VIII's accession to the throne - the strengthening and expansion of our education, outreach and conservation programmes. Our campaign is open to everyone. It will ensure the success of a wealth of exciting and ambitious projects and will allow them to be completed sooner than would otherwise be possible. We aim to have achieved our ambitions by 2012 - the year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
