Sedbergh School is applying for funding that will help us to preserve and provide access to our fascinating archive collection. The funding would allow us to catalogue the collection professionally making it easier for researchers to discover the breadth of the collection, provide museum standard preservation materials for storing the items so that they will be preserved in the long term and to create a ‘pop up’ exhibition about the history of the school that would tour local community centres and Sedbergh School events. The funding would also enable us to undertake a creative arts project with local charity Space2create who provide a safe space for patients of long term physical and mental illness.

The initial application was very warmly received by the Heritage Lottery Fund who have now asked us to gather proof of support from our community ahead of our final application submission. If you have time please click on the link and fill out the short tick box questionnaire.
