The Friends of Bucks County Museum are passionate supporters of the Museum’s exhibitions, learning programmes and events. Members are part of an active supporters group raising money for projects and promoting awareness of Museum activities.
Many members of the Friends also help the Museum as volunteers either at the County Museum in Aylesbury or behind the scenes in collections care work at the Museum Resource Centre at Halton.
The Friends recently donated £10,000 towards the purchase of the Anglo Saxon Lenborough silver coin hoard for the Museum. Other achievements include:
Contributions towards the costs of a new marketing post.
Purchase of new office equipment for staff use.
Organisation of Biannual Art Fair “Off the Wall” as a fundraiser for the Museum.
Treasure Act purchases such as gold Roman coins and silver pendants.
Funding schools art programmes.
