Major civil engineering business backs Wisbech Museum with cash donation

Major civil engineering business backs Wisbech Museum with cash donation

National civil engineering, infrastructure and tunnelling company Barhale has made a generous donation to Wisbech and Fenland Museum's appeal fund. This can be used to help to replace declining annual council funding of running costs.


As a key contractor with Anglian Water, Barhale has had a presence in Wisbech for many years, offering active apprenticeship and training and development programmes as well as supporting community initiatives through Business in the Community.


It is hoped that the company's one-off gift of £3,000, which has been donated as unrestricted funds, will kick-start similar support from local and regional companies towards plugging the gap in the museum's finances.


Barhale chairman Dennis Curran said: “We take our role in the Wisbech community, which we very much feel part of, very seriously.

“We are pleased to make this donation to the Wisbech and Fenland Museum which not only provides a fascinating historical perspective on life across the region but also makes such an important contribution to the community today.”




Museum chairman Steve McGregor said: “Everyone at the museum is delighted to receive such generous support from a nationally well-known and established business.

“We are always keen to strengthen our links with other businesses local, regional and national, and we hope that where Barhale has led others will follow. We welcome enquiries from companies to discuss how we can help each other.”



Museum trustee Russell Beal of Anglian Water said: “Anglian Water and its partners have supported a wide range of organisations in Wisbech over the years as part of their close working with Business in the Community.


“Barhale's offer to become a key sponsor at the museum is absolutely fantastic news.”
