Help us to fix the Penlee House roof!

21st June 2024 in Penlee House

The historic building of Penlee House needs urgent work to keep the art and heritage collections safe

The historic building of Penlee House needs urgent work. We need your support to raise the money needed. The roof, parts of it over 150 years old, can no longer withstand the levels of rainfall. With our changing climate, this will only get worse.

Penlee House holds some of the finest works of art from the Newlyn School, and we cannot put them at risk of damage. We have a fundraising target of £90,000. This will enable us to repair and replace the roof and guttering.

We need your help, please donate and keep a much-loved Penzance landmark safe!
