To date we’ve been awarded £122,000 in external grants. The latest grants are from the Garfield Weston Foundation and the Robertson Trust, bringing the total funding secured to date to about half a million pounds. This includes the sums pledged by you, through to the end of 2017, and money raised from events up to the end of last year.
The biggest unknown is the actual building cost of the extension and we have now invited a number of firms to bid for the build contract with tenders being submitted in late January. Subject to the remaining funding becoming available we hope to place the build contract in the spring.
Thank you to everyone who has supported the extension project, through pledges and fund raising events. Needless to say any further pledges or donations will be most welcome.
