AN antique stained glass panel has been added to the Ely Stained Glass Museum's collection, thanks to a grant from the Art Fund and local fund-raising.

The arts charity put up £2,950 towards the purchase of the panel, by Arts and Crafts designer Edward Woore.

£300 was raised by the public at Ely's Eel Day Parade last summer as part of the drive to match-fund the Art Fund grant.

Stained Glass museum curator Susan Mathews said: "Local community events have been a most enjoyable way of raising money."

The panel is now on display in the museum's main gallery.
