How can you help us fundraise?
As a registered charity and independent museum, we rely on fundraising through events, sponsorships and donations.
There are many ways you can help us to thrive- hold your own fundraising event here for us, do something amazing with us as your chosen charity, or just click 'donate now' to give what you can to our cause. No matter how small your donation, or whether it's monthly or just a 'one-off', every amount helps the museum's upkeep. See below what your contribution can do for us:
£1 -Resource printing costs for 3 school visits
£5 -Ingredients to make 30 scones for sale in our tearoom
£10 -A box of Nitrile gloves for the conservation of our collections
£20 -New 'copy books' to use in our Victorian lessons
£50 -Craft supplies to run 2 children's holiday activity days
£100 -A new, monthly fundraising activity
£500 -A large fundraising event, such as our Hitchin Children's Book Festival
£1,000 -Essential maintenance to our slate roofs
£10,000 -A chairlift to make our Galleried Classroom accessible
It costs a great deal to keep the museum open to the community- approximately £3,000 per week- but with your donations and fundraising we can secure the future of the museum for generations to come.
