I am delighted to announce that St. Mags was a successful applicant to the governments #CultureRecoveryFund
so that we can continue to be here for our community in Torbay and be a #HereForCulture
The grant of up to £13'800 assists us to help pay for essential staff till the spring, who enable us to open the doors of our historic church to the whole community. They are tasked by the fund to diversify our funding and grow networks in our community. It also provides for Covid compliant play equipment for families, PPE for staff and volunteers, perspex screens for the Living Room Cafe, Gazebo's outside to ensure social distancing if the cafe is too full and more.
With an unprecedented investment through the £1.57bn Cultural Recovery Fund, the government is #HereForCulture so it can weather the storm of coronavirus and come back stronger.
And we are #HereForCulture too.
#HereForCulture is a movement that unites the public, government and cultural organisations in support of our fantastic cinemas, theatres, music venues, museums, galleries and heritage.
