Help us to Secure the Future of Our Past
The day to day running costs of the museum, about £150 per week, far exceed our income. Currently we rely on donations from our visitors, lectures, costume hire and shop sales. This is nowhere near enough to support our essential costs: energy, building maintenance, security and insurance, all of which we must incur to maintain our status as a professional, accredited, museum.
We receive no regular funding from Town or District Councils; no regular funding from other bodies, and no regular funding from individuals or sponsors. We do apply for specific, one-off project funding from grant-giving bodies, but this does not keep the lights and heating on!
There are two ways in which you can support us on a regular basis:
- giving through our online donation system
- by visiting the Museum and donating with cash or contactless
- coming to our lecture series
