Mary Rose 500: recruiting the new crew is the public fundraising campaign being launched by the Mary Rose Trust, which has already raised £10 million towards a £14 million target, to contribute to the full £35 million cost of the new museum project. The Heritage Lottery Fund has confirmed an award of £21 million  which meets the rest of the cost. The Mary Rose 500 appeal is looking for 500 individuals, schools, businesses, organisations, clubs, societies, colleges, to come on board and symbolically become the new crew of the Mary Rose, each pledging to raise £500 and become a part of the Mary Rose history. To join the new crew visit www.maryrose500.org 

The importance of 500 to the Mary Rose  the original crew numbered some 500 and it is the 500th anniversary this year of Henry VIII coming to the throne and of his commissioning of the Mary Rose. With funding secure, the new museum will also open in time to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the start of the ships operational life (2012).
