Funding boost for Heritage Lincolnshire in COVID pandemic
Heritage Lincolnshire has been awarded a share of £103million funding from the Government's Culture Recovery Fund.
The organisation is one of 445 heritage bodies across the country set to receive the 'lifesaving financial boost' to help them keep going through the continuing coronavirus pandemic.
Greg Pickup, CEO of Heritage Lincolnshire, said: "We are delighted that Heritage Lincolnshire have been awarded with these much-needed funds and shows the support that Lincolnshire heritage and culture requires.
"Lincolnshire holds many historic sites to explore and discover and these should be part of our recovery plan for the county as we start to welcome visitors back to showcase what we have to offer.
"This fund allows us to continue the valuable work that the team complete to ensure our heritage is here for generations to come."
Among this, 443 organisations will receive a share of £67 million from the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage to help with costs for operating, reopening and recovery. This includes the International Bomber Command Centre in Lincoln.
