  Funding of the Verwood Museum Trust  

The Heritage Lottery does not give grants to new museums, heritage centres or visitors' centres with a permanent foundation but only to those projects of a limited, temporary nature.  This avenue has already been explored unsuccessfully.

Robert Thorne Ltd. has already donated the building valued at 60,000.   

East Dorset District Council has granted a long term lease at a peppercorn rent on land at the rear to the value of 50,000 on which the studio and courtyard were built.

The money for the extensions has been raised by the Trustees, other Verwood people and businesses, Grants from Verwood Town Council and East Dorset District Council.

Sanitary equipment has been donated by Bradford Building Supplies and Purbeck Pottery has donated cups and saucers for the cafe.

In addition a grant was received from "The New Horizons Trust" for interior painting by a group of volunteers.

Running costs are covered by donations, entrance fees, events, and sales.   The centre is voluntarily manned and there are no paid staff.

Subscriptions to the funds and sponsorship always welcome

Gift Aid applies to private and business donations.
