IMPACT OF COVID-19
How you can support us during these uncertain times
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a number of challenges for The Stained Glass Museum, which has been forced to close for much of the last year. We rely on the income we make from admissions, events, workshops, and shop sales to care for our collection and pay our staff. Museum closures, reduced visitors and cancelled events have had an impact on our income. We are grateful to have received emergency grant funding from the Culture Recovery Fund, ACE, National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Headley Trust, and East Cambridgeshire District Council.
There are several ways you can support us from a distance during these challenging times, by making an online donation or purchase, or joining our Friends organisation.
