How have we raised the money so far?


The target for the capital campaign to build the Defence facility is £300M by April 2018.  To-date over two thirds of the money has been raised from major donations by individuals, charitable foundations and companies, both in the UK and overseas. The Duke of Westminster donated the initial £50M.
