A third of the way there!  12 October 2021

Thanks to your generosity we can now purchase one of the cabinets that we need for this lovely space. In preparation, we have revamped the floors, freshly painted the walls and replaced the tired old curtains with sleek roller blinds. We're thrilled to have reached 33.3% of our goal for new display cabinets... And we still have 48 days left to make it to 100%. Let's make it happen!
