BCA – Covid 19 Latest

Further bad news for BCA, Poole's Cavern, and the Visitor Centre

Many of you are aware that BCA is a charity.  We own and run Poole's Cavern and use that income to manage and maintain 10 Woodlands in Buxton for the public benefit and all our other activities such as the creation of the Sensory Garden on Water Street.

Following #lockdown 1 and #lockdown 2 and with news of Derbyshire being in Tier 3 we are absolutely devastated that the cavern has to stay closed. We are reviewing the situation with our cafe and Santa events 

Yet again we have no income.

We have lost thousands upon thousands of pounds this year. 

As it stands there has been no COVID 19 emergency support or core funding pots for heritage and environmental charities like ours from the Government.   

The support from the general public however has been amazing and heartwarming though.  Thank you for your donations, thank you for becoming members, thank you for thinking about us. 

We hope that people will continue to enjoy our woods and embrace their beauty, even when the weather is not that good! 

But we still need your help!  We need support now more than ever. Please share and help raise awareness that environmental and heritage charities like ours need more help from the Government. 

Thank you 

(We also send our kind thoughts and best wishes to all the hospitality and leisure businesses in the area that are also affected by today’s news)
