Make It a Merry Christmas for the Bowes Museum by Taking Part in the Big Give


DURHAM.- The Bowes Museum is taking part in a national fundraising campaign to boost online donations during the festive period. The Barnard Castle treasure house has signed up to be part of The Big Give as a way of raising the extra funds necessary to fully equip and staff the Reading Room, which opened earlier this year as part of a major redevelopment of the 19th Century listed building. The Friends of The Bowes Museum have already pledged £6,000 towards library books for the new facility, but we are now urging members of the public to offer their support by going online at 10.00am on Monday 6 December to pledge their own contributions in a bid to match the Friends’ generosity. For those people who are able to donate as near to 10.00am on that date, their contribution can be doubled by private sponsorship managed by the Sponsors Club for Arts and Busi
