How was the Project funded?
The Project was financed by lottery funding – the Lottery Heritage Fund (now the National Lottery Heritage Fund) and the Big Lottery Fund. We received a Start-Up Grant in 2014, followed by a Development Grant in 2016 and finally a Delivery Grant in 2017.
Lottery funded projects always require partnership funding, and we are grateful to a number of organisations, from whom we received generous additional assistance.
We have received individual donations through our market stalls and attendees at our events and also had a successful Big Give Christmas Challenge Campaign in 2019 to raise funds for our Read In Peace seat.
