Geevor Tin Mine receives lifeline grant from Government’s £1.57bn Culture Recovery Fund
Geevor Tin Mine is one of 445 heritage organisations across the country set to receive a lifesaving financial boost from the government thanks to the £1.57 billion Culture Recovery Fund to help them through the coronavirus pandemic.
445 organisations will share £103 million, including Geevor Tin Mine to help restart vital work and maintenance on cherished heritage sites, keeping venues open and supporting those working in the sector.
The Culture Recovery Fund will ensure Geevor survives through the hard winter months and help prepare for a safe and successful future that, without this funding, would have looked very uncertain. The funding allows Geevor to not only preserve what is here but ensure new and engaging activities for visitors to the site.
The funding we have received from the Culture Recovery Fund will enable us to not only survive but thrive moving forward through the tough months ahead. This funding will protect jobs, progress projects, and fuel our recovery, future proofing this extraordinary piece of history. We are all incredibly grateful that Geevor has been included in the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund and thank them for providing a much needed lifeline. We would also like to thank Historic England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund for their work administering the fund.
