Museum COVID-19 Appeal Raffle
This is an urgent appeal concerning our plans for how and when we might be able to reopen, and the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on our business.
Many visitors will not realize that the National Motorcycle Museum receives no external funding whatsoever. This means that, not only do we rely on visitors to the museum, but mainly on the income from our conference business and two sister hotels.
Everyone knows that hospitality and leisure has been one of the worst hit sectors, and we don’t know when our National Conference Centre, Manor Hotel Meriden, and Windmill Village Hotel Coventry will be able to reopen fully, let alone trade profitably.
Therefore, the museum is launching an appeal which gives people the chance to help us raise the £500,000 required in two different ways.
Help us to remain open and have the chance to win three amazing classic motorcycles.
Museum Director James Hewing explains further: “Without the income from our three sister businesses, the museum may not be able to reopen, and then remain open until they return to normal trading.The museum itself requires a surplus of around £500,000 per year just to break even. Therefore, on Friday 17/07/20, the museum will be launching an appeal which gives people the chance to help us raise the £500,000 required in two different ways”
