[Bell Historians] Heritage Lottery Funds

Dear Richard,

The PCC Treasurer is almost certainly talking rubbish.

Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), in my experience, usually require some degree
of match funding from a successful applicant. Volunteer labour often forms a
significant part of this funding and is usually reckoned to be worth GBP 5
per hour for unskilled work to GBP 10 per hour for skilled work.

HLF usually supply a very comprehensive and specific to the grant, contract
document with all the Do's and Don'ts. Ask for sight of a copy. It should be
available as it's not a confidential document, this is public money!

My experience of this is in the preserved railway arena rather than
ecclesiastical arena but that shouldn't affect the process.

If I can help further please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Alex Hunt

Sorry, this might be a bit 'off topic', but I refuse to join loads of
other lists just to ask this question.

A PCC near here has just received a very generous grant from Heritage
Lottery for the full restoration of their bells. The PCC Treasurer
is now claiming that local labour cannot be used to reduce the costs
as Heritage Lottery will not allow the use of volunteer labour in
projects it supports.

Has anyone heard of this happening else where, or is the Treasurer
misreading the HL guidelines?
