Wolfson Foundation boosts the appeal  

The Wolfson Foundation has awarded a grant of £75,000 to Nunnington Hall’s ‘hanging by a thread appeal’ to safeguard three tapestries which are in urgent need of conservation. The amount will be added to £74,500 which has been secured from gifts left in wills, as well as donations from visitors to the house and other supporters. The money received from Wolfson brings the total that has been secured up to £149,500 which means conservation work can begin on the first two tapestries.
