The Alma Project

Postby JohnFearn » Sat May 16, 2009 9:55 pm

The Regimental Museum has launched a fund-raising appeal supporting the move from the current location in Queen Mary's Tower to the former Alma barracks in the outer ward of Carlisle Castle - The Alma Project.Full details and a donation form can be found at [url=http://www.kingsownbordermuseum.btik.com/p_Appeal_For_New_Museum.ikml]http://www.kingsownbordermuseum.btik.co ... useum.ikml[/url]A very worthwhile project - the Museum desperately needs more space.

It certainly felt a bit cramped when we visited in 2005. Let's hope the money floods in.

I will definitely be making my contribution to this extremely worthwhile project  :)I haven't looked into it yet but out of curiosity how much do they need?

[/quote]Looks like the total cost of the project is in excess of £1.8 million, with the bulk of the funding coming from "a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and support from the Regiment". I couldn't see a specific figure for the pupblic appeal.

I've just phoned the museum and they don't have a specific figure for the public appeal, though they need to raise a matching sum to go with funding from the Lottery.

The Alma Project is a program that provides multicultural curriculum for early childhood education (ECE) through twelfth grade. We are committed to supporting the cultural infusion of standards-based lessons into the daily curriculum. Our exciting collection of units broadens the teacher's ability to teach a more inclusive and accurate curriculum through a literacy-based approach. More importantly, it honors the cultural and historical contributions of various ethnicities represented in Denver Public Schools—which is 80 percent minority...
