SUPPORTING THE MUSEUM
The Museum has charitable status (Registered Charity No 1070420). There are many ways in which our supporters assist the Museum. Some of these are outlined below.
THE SHUTTER TELEGRAPH
We keep in touch with our many Friends of the Museum through our annual edition of THE SHUTTER TELEGRAPH and mail shot (Despatched in March each year). This provides up to date information about what is happening in the Museum and the Regular element of the Royal Signals, and also includes articles of historical interest.
The mail shotcomprises a range of other information and a copy of the current Museum Shop Mail Order Catalogue. Many of our Friends give financial support by purchasing Lottery tickets and making donations. If you do not receive THE SHUTTER TELEGRAPH but would like to do so please contact us in writing or by e-mail and we will willingly add you to our mailing list.
We are always very grateful for donations, funds from which are put to improve the Museum. For larger donations it is possible to discuss with the donor the purpose to which the funds will be put. This may, for instance,include named cabinets. If you wish to make a donation please contact:
The Royal Signals Museum,
Cheques should be made payable to: The Royal Signals Museum.
We have a very strong group of volunteers without whom the Museum could not operate successfully. The Museumhas a wide range of interesting and varied tasks that are undertaken. This can range from a few hours in the Museum from time to time, to manning the Museum at the weekend.
You do not have to live within range of the Museum to be a volunteer and we are sure that we can find a subject that would interest you. There are many research tasks that can be undertaken.If you wish to consider becoming a Museum volunteer please contact the Director.
We have a number of projects that we have planned but require funding. We are always happy to discuss these projects with Corporate bodies who are prepared to consider sponsorship. In return we can offer significant benefits which can be discussed. Anyone requiring information should contact the Director.
