The Guardian: ‘England hath need of thee’: appeal to save Milton’s Paradise Lost cottage

Many thanks to everyone who donated to our Big Give Christmas Challenge fundraising campaign.

With your support, we’re delighted to say we reached our online donation target of £10,000, which secured a further £10,000 match-funding from the Big Give and the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

All proceeds will support Darkness Visible – our new project to engage people with visual impairments, reflecting Milton’s blindness when he lived here.

It’s the perfect Christmas gift and a great finish to 2019.  We look forward to starting this project in the New Year and will keep all our supporters updated about our progress.
