Spring Forward

support us

Help us raise £100k to offset the devastating cost of the pandemic and secure the Maltings' future for the community

The pandemic has hit us hard. Our building has been closed for much of the last year; our riverside café closed; our car park unused; our programme of events cancelled and our community users’ activities on hold. The Maltings staff team have taken voluntary pay cuts; we have undertaken a redundancy programme; we have made use of the Government’s furlough scheme and we have secured Cultural Recovery funds. We need your support so that we are robust enough to adapt and reinvent ourselves to meet the needs of the community as we emerge from a financially devastating year.

We are excited about the future. Help us to face the future and become the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Your donations will make a tangible difference for us to do what we do and grow.
