Charity description

78 Derngate: A house that was re-modelled in 1916/17 by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. It was commissioned by the thoroughly modern model engineer, W J Bassett-Lowke and is the only house Mackintosh designed in England. The house is now open to the public.

[color=#000000]As you may already be aware, a grant of up to £200,000 has been pledged to us by Northampton Borough Council to enhance the visitor experience here at The Charles Rennie Mackintosh House & Galleries. We need to match fund this amount from public donations. We plan to enlarge the existing atrium to facilitate an increased shopping area, a new reception area and tearoom and provide a new exhibition/performance space at mezzanine level.  At the same time it will provide better permanent disabled access. The increased storage will free up rooms in 78 Derngate, enabling them to be open to the public for the first time. The opportunity also exists to reduce our carbon footprint by lowering heating costs. We are asking Friends & Supporters to donate in units of £100; for each £100 the donors' names will be engraved on glass panelling located in the new atrium. So, if you wish to add 2 names this will cost £200 and so on.  We do, of course welcome donations of any amount & individual groups could potentially donate through their own fund-raising activities. [/color]
