CHAMBORD SUFFERED THE ALL-TIME WORST FLOODING A Project of C | KBFUS Funds
After the toughest weather in the very first days of June 2016, the château de Chambord was widely surrounded by water. Due to the unique heavy rain which covered large swathes of the region the monument had to be closed for for five days as an exceptional measure. Since then, it has been reopened to visitors, the first reviews revealed that some rehabilitation works shall be required in the Chambord national Estate.
Fortunately, the château and the Chambord's collections were not damaged, but very considerable damages were caused in several spots of the Chambord national estate.
Your gifts shall be dedicated to the first phase emergency repair and renovation works directed towards:
- The road works for the visitors walking around the château and the public circulating on the alleys, forest trail and roads in the estate;
- Some weakened engineering structure, namely the surrounding wall, -classified as historic monument- came tumbling down in three particular spots (three breaches) or weakened on quite a few long sections;
- Replacing plucked up trees and the perspectives lining up anew.
Even more than ever before Chambord certainly needs your help to succeed in this.
A raising campaign to call on the public generosity was activated in order to financially support the necessary restoration.
Donate online, tell others around you about the emergency restoration and share the information on social networks using the watchword #Ilovechambord!
