Dig Deep For Archaeology – We Need Your Help!

CBA Fundraising Appeal 2018 – Target £50,000

Our parent organisation, the Council for British Archaeology (CBA), is launching an important fundraising appeal. More people are involved in archaeology across the UK than every before, and new discoveries continue to come thick and fast, yet the impact on archaeology of changing Government policies and priorities, particularly in England, the possible consequences of Brexit and other UK-wide issues are giving major cause for concern.

This could have a significant impact on the Leicestershire Young Archaeologists’ Club. We are run by volunteers who freely give up their time to organise sessions throughout the year, providing fantastic opportunities for young people aged 8-16 to get their hands mucky doing real archaeology. However, to do this we are reliant on the support of YAC UK and the CBA, whose financial resources are under increasing pressure.

So we are supporting the CBA’s fundraising appeal and ask everyone to give generously to support our work for archaeology. We aim to raise £50,000 by April 2019 to ensure that we can continue our wide-ranging work. Every £1 counts, so please go to our dedicated giving page at donate.archaeologyuk.org and dig deep for archaeology!
