LEGO and the Heath Robinson Museum

legoBrick by brick the William Heath Robinson Museum is being built and is due to open very soon now – mid Summer 2016. Trustees are pleased to announce that, as a gesture of support, LEGO has donated a large box of LEGO bricks for the museum. Creativity and building will be by-words for the museum; getting children involved in practical hands-on activities are at the forefront of what the museum will be all about.

Claire Linge, Learning Officer for the new Museum says “We are very grateful to LEGO for their kind donation. It will help enliven our future workshops with children – and maybe adults. It will help bring architecture to life and foster children’s imagination. Our thanks to LEGO for making us such a practical gift”.

Danny Cazzato, one of the People’s Choices at the Secret Art Sale last year and husband of Delia Cazzato, one of the William Heath Robinson Museum volunteers, works at LEGO and put forward the idea that there is a very real link between the aims of LEGO and that of the new Museum. Danny said “The recently launched “Buy a Brick” campaign aimed at raising funds to complete the museum has a focus on the need for “bricks” of every sort. We at LEGO are delighted to contribute to the effort by providing a LOT of bricks for the younger audience who come to the Museum workshops, to add to their enjoyment”.
