We’ve finally heard that The Loughborough Bellfoundry Trust has been awarded a grant of £3.45 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund. This will at last enable the major scheme to restore and develop the Foundry buildings and site to begin. This major grant will be added to matched funding of £1.5 million already raised, together with money from other sources, and major donations in kind. A further £1.3 million pounds worth of repairs has already been successfully completed in the past two years, giving a total spend approaching £7 million! What a lovely Christmas Present.
WE WISH EVERYBODY A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS
