The British Motor Museum at Gaydon is to benefit from a £707,000 cash injection from the government’s Culture Recovery Fund to help it through the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and to secure its future sustainability.
A £76m investment scheme was announced by the government last month, and the British Motor Museum is one of 588 cultural and creative organisations across the country to receive support.
“We are delighted that the government has given the British Motor Museum a generous award from the Culture Recovery Fund. It will enable us to continue to look after our amazing collections, support the talented team of people that work at the museum and plan for the future,” said Stephen Laing, Head of Collections.
“It will also help us to keep welcoming visitors through the doors of the museum in the coming months and to share our wonderful stories with them.”
In all, the CRF totals £1.57 billion, and includes the £257m awarded recently to 1385 organisations, including the Brooklands Museum.
