Updated January 8th 2021.

On 20th March 2020 the Vindolanda Trust had to close its doors to both Roman Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum in response to the fight against COVID-19. ALL the Trust's operating income comes from admissions to our sites, spending in our shops and cafes and from donations and this left a huge hole in our funds and a threatened our future. During this crisis the Vindolanda Trust has carefully managed its resources, but despite this they have steadily diminished and the Charity has lost more than half a million pounds of income.  

We have now exceeded our original £100,000 target and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of those who have supported us. It is now 2021 and once again we find ourselves under National Lockdown and unable to open our sites.  The struggles that we faced in 2020 have not gone away and as winter takes hold vital maintenance work has to continue to protect the site. 

We are therefore keeping our Survival Appeal open and have increased our target to £200,000.  The generosity shown to date is making a difference and we cannot thank you enough.
