Help us raise £30,000 to build new storage racks for our growing collection of stained glass

The Stained Glass Museum is raising funds to buy and install two new bespoke collections storage racks to house its growing collection of stained glass.

Additional storage will enable us to:

*continue to develop the collection through new acquisitions;
*ensure secure protected storage of our collections;
*unlock the potential for access to our stored collections for researchers, academics and the public through specialised tours and at special events.

The total project will cost £30,000. Please help us to raise these funds.
