The remaining 30% of event profits will be shared between three local charities:
The Archway Project will create a new state-of-the-art Learning Centre and World Heritage Visitor Centre at the Roman Baths complex, due to open in 2019. It will bring back to life an important group of Victorian spa buildings, adjoining the main Roman Baths via an ornate 19th century archway, constructed to transport the thermal spa waters, and which lends the project its name.
Bath & North East Somerset Young Carers provides help, support, advice, workshops and breaks for young carers aged 5 to 18 who regularly look after a family member who is ill, frail or disabled.
“Young Carers have so much responsibility at such a tender age so things like the Minerva Owls sculpture trail provide an opportunity for them to just be children and enjoy themselves. That’s why we’re delighted to be a charity partner of such a great event that will make such a big difference to Young Carers in the future”
The UK Little Owl Project is a Bath-based conservation organisation, set up in June 2015 to help protect UK Little Owls. The project aims to further understanding of the Little Owl's ecology in the UK, and support, develop and promote new and existing UK Little Owl research projects.
Donations will be made to the Roy Dennis Wildlife Foundation, which gives grant funding to the UK Little Owl Project. Charity number SC023741
