Days to Centenary: 260
The Bletchley Park Trust, which has custody of Alan Turing’s wartime codebreaking stomping grounds, has just been awarded £4.6 million by the Heritage Lottery Fund to restore and preserve the historic site, which at one point was nearly bulldozed to make way for a Tesco supermarket.
Still, the Trust must first raise £1.7 million on its own in order to unlock the lottery funds.
Much of Bletchley Park is in poor condition and is deteriorating, making this fundraising — as the Trust web site puts it — “a race against time.”
Consider making a donation to the Trust today to help preserve this monument to Alan Turing and the many, many others who worked tirelessly (and in the obscurity required by national security) to defeat Naziism. You can find details about the campaign here, make a donation here, or shop for Bletchley Park merch.
