The Trustees of Apsley Paper Trail are thrilled to share the fantastic news that the Trust has been awarded a major grant of £213,600 from the third round of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund. We are among 925 recipients to benefit from this latest round of awards, which will be used to support operations, education and vital conservation work at Frogmore Paper Mill over the coming months.

The trust has lost significant income since the start of the pandemic, but with grants from the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Heritage Emergency Fund, we were able to re-open to the public and continue to welcome visitors, schools, volunteers and our local community.

CEO Elena Lewendon, said:

“The support from the Cultural Recovery Fund has helped Apsley Paper Trail deal with the financial impact of the pandemic and build our organisation’s resilience. Trustees, staff, volunteers and all who care about Frogmore Paper Mill are so grateful for this vital support. With this funding, we can realise our ambitions to reach more audiences and inspire them with the amazing story of paper. Thanks to the DCMS, we can develop our work around recycling and sustainability, building a greener, happier, connected community and inspiring a new generation of climate champions”.
