Dippy on Tour North West
In the North of England there’s a definite buzz about a bid that’s set to put the town of Rochdale firmly on the Natural History map. Last Autumn, Rochdale Borough Council and their culture and leisure trust, Link4Life, heard they’d been successful in securing an extended visit from the Natural History Museum’s famous dinosaur, Dippy. Between February and June 2020, the diplodocus will be installed in the town centre’s Number One Riverside building, as part of a ground-breaking national tour.
It’s a historic project with huge potential for engaging young people, especially, in a range of STEM activities. Gifted is excited to be partnering Dippy’s North West hosts, in delivering the most effective fundraising strategy to attract major grants, corporate sponsorship and public support. Liaising with schools, wildlife organisations and museums in the region, we’ll also be capitalising on the opportunity to link fundraising with the wide range of local heritage initiatives.
