THE woman helping to lead the transformation of The D-Day Museum in Southsea has welcomed the £43,000 donation it has received from Victorious Festival.

As reported, Victorious organisers have given a portion of cash made through ticket sales towards the attraction.

It will go towards a £5m project to help the museum become a national teaching hub on the 75th anniversary of D-Day.

Jane Mee, the museum’s project director said: ‘I am very, very grateful, and hugely surprised.

‘To have forty-odd thousand donated to a museum by local businessmen is phenomenal and really encouraging.’

Jane said the museum welcomes donations from any members of the public however large or small.

‘If there are other people in the city who want to support us in the way James Ralls (and his team) have then that would be amazing,’ she said.

‘This is our big D-Day museum project and it’s about completely restructuring the museum.’
