Make a Donation

The Museum aims to keep the history of coal mining alive for everyone to learn about and enjoy.  Every contribution, however large or small, is very important to us and will help us to achieve our aim.

You can donate online or if you prefer, you can download a donation form to be returned by post. 

If you would like your donation to be allocated to a specific project or appeal, please specify this when making your donation.

If you would like to make your donation by international payment, please email us to receive details of our IBAN and BIC.

Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate

Gift Aid is reclaimed by the Museum from the tax you pay for the current tax year. There is no extra cost to you - all you need to do is complete a Gift Aid declaration with your address. Your address is needed to identify you as a current UK taxpayer.

To qualify to make a Gift Aid declaration, you must be a UK taxpayer that has paid at least as much in Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax as the total amount of Gift Aid claimed on all your charitable donations in that tax year. It is your responsibility to pay any difference.

We will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give us now and in the future and over the previous four years.  So if you are eligible and want to make your donation go further, Gift Aid it!


20% of supporters gift aid their donations. Last year this amounted to an extra £27,229 that we could claim at no cost to the supporter!
