Heritage Emergency Fund grant for Bucks County Museum
Bucks County Museum is delighted to have received a Heritage Emergency Fund grant from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to help the Museum transform and adapt in these difficult times. The grants have been provided to support organisations who have lost much of their income due to Covid-19 and the subsequent closures this year. The grant of £49,300 is vital funding for essential fundraising costs to support the museum in the future, a review of the museum’s business and funding model and the creation of a new website and branding to reflect the changes in the organisation. Bucks County Museum will be consulting with different schools, families, businesses and community audiences over the next couple of months to find out what local people want from the Museum and to collaborate with them on new programmes for visitors which will be reflected in the new funded website.
Museum Director Sue Shave said “We are so grateful to all those Lottery Players out there who buy tickets every week and enable key funding to reach heritage and community groups via The National Lottery Heritage Fund. This funding will help the Museum to become more relevant to our local community and help impact and change people’s lives as they recover from the pandemic. “
If any local groups are keen to have a conversation with the Museum about working together, please email email@example.com. Coronavirus has been an appalling pandemic disrupting thousands of people’s lives – Bucks County Museum is keen to help the local community recover and thrive again.
