The good news keeps coming!
Almost 450 heritage organisations in England, including Tall Ship Zebu have been awarded cash from the first round of the Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage.
For Zebu, this funding will help launch the Zebu Sea Messenger initiative that will combine the presence of the historic Tall Ship Zebu with promoting both the UK’s vast maritime history and awareness of marine environmental concerns to the coastal communities. The project aims to make maritime heritage more relevant, accessible, and meaningful to more people as well as providing a platform for promoting environmental and sustainability awareness.
Colonel John Blashford-Snell CBE, Tall Ship Zebu’s Honorary Patron said:
"Zebu has had some amazing adventures, and positively changed the lives of hundreds of young - and not so young (!) - people since her involvement with Operation Raleigh in the '80's. This backing and funding from the Cultural Recovery Fund means that once again Zebu will bring heritage to the forefront by engaging communities, schools and educational outreach groups with the ship as the platform for sail training, whilst promoting environmental and sustainability awareness, as well as UK maritime and cultural heritage."
