The Museum of Cambridge is pleased to announce they have received a grant of up to £15,360 from Amey Community Fund (part of the Landfill Communities Fund) to repair the roof of the Enid Porter Building.
The funds will allow for the much-needed repair and replacement of three sections of damaged roof on the Museum’s Enid Porter Building which houses its offices, Collection Store, and multi-function room.
The Amey Community Fund awards grants to support community, environmental and heritage projects run by non-profit organisations based in Cambridgeshire, within 10 miles of a landfill site. The fund is managed by Cambridgeshire Community Foundation and is part of a voluntary environmental tax credit scheme called the Landfill Communities Fund.

Maddie Cox, Operations and Facilities Manager, said:
“We are so grateful our application to Amey Community Fund has been successful. This roof project is incredibly important to ensure that our people and collections are safe and protected now and into the future. We look forward to working with specialist roofers, Tanner and Hall, to ensure this repair is done to the highest quality.”
Roger Lilley, Trustee, said:
“As a charity it is important for us to forge new, strong links with local businesses and funders. This roof work was a priority for the Museum, and we were pleased to find the Amey Community Fund was an option to finance this work.”
