We at Prickwillow Museum sincerely hope that you are all keeping healthy in these difficult times. It looks as though we are not going to be opening the museum anytime soon, with the necessary government restrictions imposing a complete shut-down for the foreseeable future.
Under normal circumstances we would be preparing everything at the museum in readiness to open in a week or so's time, but not this year!
Unfortunately, while we are in this shutdown situation, our fixed costs are still there, and at Prickwillow Museum that means approximately £12,000 a year to cover all our expenditure on insurance, water, electricity, fuel, rent, specialists services, maintenance of the exhibits, etc.
Being an independent museum and a registered charity, we are totally reliant on events we run throughout the year to raise money to cover our costs. Unfortunately, this year it looks as though most, if not all, of our events will be cancelled. But we still have to cover our costs which this year, due to the shut-down, will be slightly lower than usual but still around £8000.
Therefore, we would like to ask if you would personally help the museum by making a donation to our support fund. Please follow THIS LINK to our fundraising page.
