We were thrilled to announce in July that we have been successful in our bid for £9.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This news, coupled with receiving planning permission from the Lake District National Park in June means the project to create fantastic new museum facilities can now be delivered.
Lakeland Arts has raised an enormous £3 million in match funding over the last two years and now only needs a further £300,000 to reach the final target. The support for the project has been overwhelming and we were pleased to be able to thank many of our supporters on an evening cruise around Windermere on MV Swan, courtesy of Windermere Lake Cruises.
We also launched our One Million for the Museum Endowment campaign to raise £500,000 by 2016. For more information on how to give visit the website.
