The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has granted the RAF Museum a First-Round Pass towards £1,783,700 of funding for Phase 2b (Historic Hendon) of its RAF Centenary Programme. Phase 2b of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme – ‘Historic Hendon’, focuses on the historical significance of the Museum’s London site as the London Aerodrome in the early 20th Century and later RAF Hendon. Thanks to the National Lottery players, the landscape at the heart of the site will be transformed to create a ‘sense of place’ linked to that unique airfield heritage. The project will also deliver outdoor play and picnic spaces, creating a new ‘village green’ for the Museum’s local communities and other visitors. Phase 2b of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme complements the work of Phase 2a which received Heritage Lottery funding of £4.9m in May 2015. It will ensure that the Museum’s London site tells the RAF’s story in an inclusive, reflective, engaging and exciting way for all our visitors to mark this important national anniversary. Maggie Appleton RAF Museum CEO, said: “This was a challenging funding round. We faced a lot of stiff competition from many worthwhile organisations competing for the available funding, which makes our successful application even more fantastic. We were commended on the quality and strength of our application and the HLF have said that they are looking forward to seeing the completed project and a transformed Museum.”This award brings the Museum even closer to the £23m overall target, with just under £10m now left to raise.
There are many ways that you can get more involved with our RAF Centenary Programme; by volunteering at events or with our Development Team; fundraising for us at challenge events or in your local area or taking part in some of our fundraising in 2016.If you'd like to find out more and discuss getting involved in these activities please contact Helen Nichols, our Development Executive, via email or by calling 020 8358 4847.You can also support our RAF Centenary Programme by making a donation.
