HMS Cavalier wins National Lottery Award!
The National Lottery Awards 2010 - Thank you for voting!
We are delighted to let you know that HMS Cavalier, our Second World War Destroyer and one of the star attractions here at The Historic Dockyard Chatham, has won a National Lottery Award, so thank you so much to all those that voted for us. The Awards are an annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects, and they aim to celebrate and recognise the difference that those projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK.
After making it through to the finals, thanks to a huge amount of support, HMS Cavalier gained more public votes than two other projects in the Best Education Project category to win the national award and a £2,000 prize, thank you to all who voted to crown HMS Cavalier as the winner! This is a major achievement, not only for The Historic Dockyard Chatham and all the volunteers that have dedicated hundreds of thousands of hours restoring this ship, but also for the whole of Kent and Medway as something to be proud of.
