Funding we have received and how to contribute to Wisbech General Cemetery.
The Trustees are delighted to have received confirmation from The Heritage Lottery of a grant of £303,800 towards the costs of the project to save the Grade II Listed Victorian chapel and bring it back into community use as a meeting place, and education and exhibition centre.
The total cost for the scope of works to the Chapel summarised below is £351,600 and the Society has pledged £15,000 towards this from its own resources. The Robert Hall Charity has kindly offered £10,800 and the value of volunteer time contributions amounts to £19,000.
In addition to this, the team has committed to raise a minimum of £13,000 by way of a general appeal. It is hoped that more than this minimum can be raised so that more work can be completed in the General Cemetery, further helping preserve this important part of Wisbech’s heritage.
We are relying on your generous support to help us achieve this goal. Please send donations to:
*The Hon Treasurer, David Crouch,
1 The Chase, Leverington Road,
Wisbech, PE13 1RX* All donations will be recorded and acknowledged at the Cemetery. Please state if anonymity is required. We thank you for your generous support.
