Llanthony Secunda Priory is very grateful to receive a grant of £9400 from the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund to help the organisation recover and reopen this Spring. Nearly £400 million has been awarded to thousands of cultural organisations across the country in the latest round of support from the Culture Recovery Fund.
Llanthony Secunda Priory's grant of £9400 is a big boost on our road to reopening our buildings later this Spring. The grant will help fund essential maintenance and conservation work on our North West Range, as well as supporting staff wages. As an independent heritage charity looking after 7 Grade I and II listed buildings and structures, as well as 5 acres of grounds, the funding will make a big difference.
The funding awarded is from a £400 million pot which was held back last year to ensure the Culture Recovery Fund could continue to help organisations in need as the public health picture changed. The funding has been awarded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Historic England as well as the British Film Institute and Arts Council England
Ros Kerslake, CEO of The National Lottery Heritage Fund, said:
“Spring is definitely here, bringing not only sunshine but that sense of optimism and hope for the future. We are all looking forward to heritage places and other visitor attractions reopening and I am very pleased that we have been able to support DCMS in delivering this vital funding to ensure the UK’s heritage sector can rebuild and thrive, boosting local economies, creating jobs and supporting personal wellbeing.”
Over £800 million in grants and loans has already been awarded to support almost 3,800 cinemas, performance venues, museums, heritage sites and other cultural organisations dealing with the immediate challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
