As you all know, every item in our collection requires tender loving care. That may mean conservation, restoration, storage, specialist mounts, display cases or display graphics. All these things require specialists to work on them and time and money to complete. To start 2016, we are relaunching the Adopt an Object Scheme. This scheme offers members and volunteers the opportunity to play a part in the care of our fascinating collections. By choosing an object and adopting it for a 2 year period, you will become part of the story of that object. We will let you know if it is moved, redisplayed, loaned out or put in storage. Your name will be placed beside the object when it is on display.
We do hope that you will become part of this incentive to raise funds to help keep our collections in the best condition possible. There are 40 objects which can be adopted for a minimum donation of £100 and 10 star objects with a minimum donation of £250. Of course if there is an object you love but it is not on the list please let us know. The objects are listed in a leaflet available in the Museum. Please contact Sara Willis at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
