Fundraising for BCLM: Forging Ahead is already well underway.

We need your support for BCLM: Forging Ahead; a transformational development project which will see us create a major new Historic Town and Industrial Area set in the 1940-60s, dedicated learning facilities and a contemporary Visitor Centre.

So far we’ve secured investment from Heritage Lottery Fund (subject to a successful Round Two application), Arts Council England, in principle support from Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and are investing our own money too. We’re also working hard on a number of funding bids to trusts, foundations and other grant givers who we’ll hear from throughout 2018. 

So you might be thinking “How can I help?” We need your help to raise £150,000 to reach our fundraising target and enable this exciting project to take place. 

Your support will help us to:

  • Create dedicated learning facilities for 90,000 school children to explore our unique heritage
  • Save stories, items and buildings for visitors to enjoy in the future
  • Provide activities and opportunities for members of our local community, young and not-so-young, to learn new skills, volunteer, meet people and of course, have fun.
