The success of our project will not be ours alone, but due in great part to the generosity of our donors. Restoring the Maid is a £5.5m capital project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund. To release £3.8 million from HLF we now need to raise the remaining £1.7 million.
As of 2018 we have been granted £950k from the Scottish Government and a further £50k from The Paddle Steamer Preservation Society. Taking us even closer to our goal.
There are six ways you can help create a bright new horizon for our Maid. You can Donate, Be our friend, Volunteer, Shop Maid merchandise, Fundraise and Tell our story.
As the well-known saying goes, every little helps! Your donation will help us reach our target of £1.7 million so we can triumphantly return the Maid to her former glory! Please helps this good news story happen! You can give online, by Text, by Paypal, by card or by cheque or via BACS.
