Come on Shetland! Museum in semi-finals for Lottery competition

From Shetland Museum and Archives - they need our support!

The Shetland Museum and Archives are delighted to have reached the semi-finals of the National Lottery Awards, the annual search to find the UK's favourite Lottery-funded projects. We are competing against nine other projects in the Best Heritage Project Category and need your help to reach the finals.

We are the only Scottish project short listed in this category and are competing with projects in large cities. As the award is decided entirely by public vote, we need to attract as many votes as possible to be in with a chance of reaching the final. Voting for the semi-finals started today and ends midday on Friday 10th July. If we are in the top three we will go through to a final round of voting in August, where the overall winner will receive £2,000.

To register a vote for us call 0844 686 8390 or log on to and click the vote now button at the bottom of the page . Visitors to the Museum and Archives can cast their vote at reception or in the Archives Searchroom.

Every vote counts so please spread the word and help us to generate as many votes as possible, we really appreciate your support.

Good luck to the museum!
