Any funding is great news for the chapter and well done to everyone involved in getting the award.

Having read both the National Lottery and WMUK, it seems to fall short on anything particularly specific on what the funds will be spent on? Presumably, the chapter had some provisional/speculative ideas of organisations and programmes it would assign funds to when it put itself forward for this pot of cash? Are there existing projects that the chapter expects this money to help extend/expand, what is considered "underrepresented cultural heritage".

Apologies if this stuff is available elsewhere, I'm a bit out of the loop with chapter happenings, and I've only gotten (back) into the content side of things really since October-ish.
