Fundraising with Athelstan Museum

Athelstan Museum Appeal.

Friends of Athelstan Museum have, with the help of extremely generous donations, been able to buy the old Moravian Church, which has been derelict and an eyesore for many years.

We hope that you may be able to support us and that you share our aspirations to better Malmesbury and its amenities. We shall use the building to expand and improve the facilities the museum already offers; for example our educational work with schools will benefit enormously from the extra space and we shall be able to stage more exhibitions and on a larger scale.

The church will offer a wonderful meeting space and with modern sound and projection equipment should prove an ideal venue for talks. We shall encourage other groups to use these facilities. In restoring the Moravian Church we shall be saving an historic building for Malmesbury and the surrounding community. It will involve a good deal of expense to do the repairs and make the necessary alterations and then to equip the building.

If you feel you would be able to support this project we would welcome your donation, however large or small. We enclose a suitable form which includes a gift aid section.

Thank you.

Malmesbury Appeal

You will find two forms attached. One is for a straight forward donation and includes a gift aid section. Please be as benevolent as you can. The second is for a legacy. It is simple to fill out and merely requires two people to witness your signature, who should not be relatives, then store it with your will, whether that be at home with your other papers or lodged with your solicitor. Please also tell your executor of its existence.

We very much hope that you will feel that you can be generous on both fronts.

MALMESBURY COIN HOARD - Fundraising Appeal Part 2

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated towards purchasing the Malmesbury Coin Hoard. Athelstan Museum now needs your help to raise additional funds for the conservation and display of the hoard in the museum. The Roman coin hoard will be a terrific attraction for the museum and town and show even more of the rich and wonderful history of Malmesbury.

Your donations will help display the Malmesbury Coin Hoard!

Please visit the Museum to make a donation, or post your cheque (payable to Friends of Athelstan Museum) to Treasurer, Athelstan Museum, Cross Hayes, Malmesbury, SN16 9BZ.
