Would you like to help us by volunteering?

An extra pair of hands is always welcome at the museum. If you have some spare time and a love of history, please get in touch with us.

There are many ways in which you can help us

You just need to have an interest in the history of Ware, and enjoy learning more. You will enjoy talking to people, and be able to make a regular commitment of 2 hours, 2 or 3 times a month.

We will talk to all candidates to assess their suitability and arrange a trial period. 

You will need to have an interest in the history of Ware; a willingness to focus on details and aim for accuracy in recording. Or perhaps you would prefer to help us with maintenance of the buildings bringing practical skills to bear. Technical skills are also welcome in these times of digital technology.

You would need a sympathetic understanding of how a museum works, with an interest in management and business development.

Make a donation

Ware Museum is an independent museum that relies on grants and donations for its continued existence. We do not charge an admission fee. Every donation is important to the museum. Money donated is used entirely for the upkeep of the museum artefacts, exhibitions, equipment and buildings.

How to donate

Remember Ware Museum in your will

The Trust is constantly striving to raise funds from local and national grant-giving bodies but they almost always require “match-funding” or the grants can only be used short-term. It is vital that the Trust has an adequate fund of its own to maintain, provide for emergencies, and cover the costs of improvements.

What to do

You could consider a Specific Legacy or a Residual Bequest. Your solicitor would be pleased to advise you on the correct wording.
