There are just six days left before the resting place of the West Yorkshire Hoard is determined.

At 11am this morning, thanks to grant giving and personal donations, the total raised towards the purchase of the Hoard, which was found in Leeds, is £44,982.50.

Should further grant applications that are awaiting decision next week be successful, the remaining funds that we need to raise are just under £21,000 – we are so close!

A fantastic £1,770 was raised at the preview evening at Leeds City Museum, led by the Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society and the Friends of Leeds Museums.  Many thanks to all that attended and we hope you enjoyed the event.

Online donations raised to date are £1,478.75 (incl. gift aid).

Cheques sent in to the appeal total £1,733.75 (incl. gift aid)

Sincere thanks to everyone who has contributed to this appeal.  A list of which is on our supporters page but doesn’t list the very generous donations made by supporters who wish to remain anonymous who we sincerely thank.
