DONATE TO THE BELLFOUNDRY
Every donation is important, no matter how big or small, so we encourage people to give whatever they can to help save this remarkable place.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HELP OUR CAUSE, THERE ARE A NUMBER OF WAYS YOU CAN DO THIS
A donation of £2,500 will be acknowledged by including the donor’s name, along with a few others, on one of the bells cast for the new carillon. Donors will be invited to be present when their bell is cast.
A donation of £5,000 or more will allow a donor to place their name and their own unique inscription on one of the new carillon bells. Donors will be invited to be present when their bell is cast.
All donations, big or small, will be acknowledged with an entry into our donor book, which will be on display in our museum and form a permanent record of the community’s generosity, held in our archive for future generations.
Please send a cheque made payable to the Loughborough Bellfoundry Trust to the following address:
Mr D Potter, Trustee,

The Loughborough Bellfoundry Trust have received a first-round pass from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and the Trust is currently developing its proposals further for a second-round submission in the summer of 2020. As such the funding from the National Lottery is not 100% secured. If the second-round bid is not successful, we propose to use all donations to deliver repair works to the foundry buildings.
Please do not hesitate to get back in touch if you require any further information or guidance on how you can support this special place.
