Woolf Institute raises close to £1m for new site in Cambridge

Woolf Institute plans purpose-built site in Cambridge

By Cathy Forman, May 24, 2012

The Woolf Institute has announced that it has raised three-quarters of the £1 million required to move to a new purpose-built home in Cambridge.

This was reported at a London dinner this week to honour Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks and his contribution to interfaith relations.

The institute currently leases rooms at Wesley House but a lack of space has threatened its continued growth. The new site — in the grounds of Westminster College — has space for a 10,000 sq ft building.
