Donations

Our collection has been built by the generous donations of many past members and supporters. To build the collection even further for the future, we need many more donations.

If you think you have something that might be of use to us and would like to gift it, please contact the Secretary or President and discuss it with us.

Most items are usually very gratefully received. However we still need to go through an accessioning process to ensure that the items in question meet our Collection Policy, particularly large items.
