Whilst our site is closed it still costs us over £1000 a day to look after the tunnels, our digital outreach and our staff even though we'll have no income from ticket, gift or food sales visitors buying boat trips, enjoying the Gongoozler or browsing our gift shop.

Our target of £30,000 is the minimum we need to raise just to meet these costs for 30 days.

But you can help us keep protecting and sharing Dudley Tunnel with the world through these difficult times!

Your money can help us to;

- create digital learning resources, available for free on our website for families, teachers and anyone else to enjoy

- create content for our social media platforms to engage, entertain and inspire those at home, connecting them with their heritage, such us our Virtual Tunnel Tots weekly story sessions, live talks and demonstrations, videos and more

- support vulnerable and at-risk people in our community with contact through digital means and phone support during their periods of isolation

- maintain the caverns, tunnels and mines whilst we are closed to the public

- innovate new ways to connect people with their heritage virtually

- protect the Dudley Tunnel and its waterways network so that people can enjoy it when the nation's health improves

and much more!

Whether you can give the value of a virtual coffee, boat trip, Sunday lunch or more we're grateful for every penny.

Thank you so much for your support.
