The New Foundations Project

Please can you help us restore our amazing Grade II* listed drying sheds. As you can see they are in a very poor state and desperately need rescuing.

We aim to create a Community Business Hub. Shed 1 will be mainly offices for small/medium enterprises and Shed 2 will have a glazed atrium space for exhibitions and to hire out.

The income from the rent will keep the only complete Victorian brickworks left in the UK fit for the future.

The museum has raised half the sum needed for the first phase but needs matched funding of £40,000 - can you help?

Any sum, no matter how small, would be really useful. You can use the Paypal button below to donate (you don't have to be a subscriber) or send us a cheque using the contact details.

Thanks for your help.

To make a donation to The Brickworks Using Paypal simply click the 'Donate' button below. NB: You do not need a Paypal account to use the Paypal service for donations. You can use your debit or credit card.

Sponsor a Brick
Published:6th Dec 2018 by Carolyne Haynes

If you are stuck for a present for the hard to buy person in your life why not sponsor one of our bricks.

For just £20 you will receive a box full of goodies including a ticket to visit the museum, a mini-brick to keep and treasure, a certificate of sponsorship...and most of all, our heartfelt thanks for supporting the museum. These are challenging times and all the money we raise from sponsorship will be fantastically useful for our New Foundations Project.

If you are interested please get in touch and we will send you photos of the bricks available to sponsor. There is a SCOTT, a TUDOR, a BBC and all sorts of others, even the humble LBC makes an appearance.

There are more details on our Facebook page.
