To purchase display cabinets for museum exhibitions

by PAST LIVES Genealogy & Social History in Bridgend, Wales, United Kingdom

PAST LIVES are a professional genealogy and social history consultancy business. Director Cheryl Hart has long planned and worked towards opening a social history museum in the Bridgend area, South Wales. Phase 1 of this project has now come to fruition with the acquisition of exhibition premises which will enable the permanent display of some of our historic artefacts and documents.

We will be working closely with school groups, theming exhibitions to the national curriculum, as well as various youth groups and associations, and adult societies to provide exhibitions of local or of specialised interest. We already have several local youth associations 'signed up' to attend exhibitions in 2018.

 We have vast archives of historical artefacts and materials for exhibition. However, we need to acquire further cabinets and shelving to add to those which we currently have  to enable the safe and secure display of our objects. 

I am looking to raise £1500 for the purchase of suitable display cases. All donations - large and small - will be very gratefully received. Associate membership of the museum will be given to everyone who donates to out appeal which will allow unlimited free admission to the museum and exhibitions; further bonus 'gifts' given according to level of donation.
