The Future of the Pankhurst Centre
This time last year we were putting the final touches to our bid for a £2.6million grant for the transformation of the Pankhurst Centre to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF). Our proposal is to create an enhanced museum attraction, along with multi-functional exhibition, activity, and working spaces, to be used to ensure the legacy of the Suffragette Movement continues to influence and inform the continuing struggle for gender equality.
Sadly, our first attempt at bidding was unsuccessful, but we Suffragettes “Never Surrender!” and are preparing to try again. There is lots more to do. Thank you to everyone who has helped us thus far and to all those who continue to be so generous with their time.
