Thank you to all who have supported the Derby Ram Trail and helping to secure the future of Derby’s heritage for everyone.
The Derby Ram auction at the end of the trail raised funds for Derby Museums’ Endowment Campaign. An Endowment will create financial resilience and stability, helping to secure the future of Derby Museums for everyone for years to come. We have partnered with the National Lottery Heritage Fund who, until September 2022, have pledged to match every pound donated up to £1 million, to create an Endowment of £2 million. This means the profit raised at the auction has been doubled, making the legacy of the Derby Ram Trail even more amazing.
The Derby Ram Trail was about making public art accessible to the people of Derby and beyond today. The legacy of the trail will help to ensure that Derby art and heritage remain accessible for tomorrow’s generations.
