Fundraise for Us

Did you know that it costs £13,000 per day to run the Museum? As an educational charity with over 80,000 heritage items and buildings to take care of,  we rely on fundraising to help us to preserve the Black Country's history.

If you are a supporter of the Museum and it's work, there are lots of ways you can   get involved and help us to raise funds.  You may have some great ideas of how you would like to raise funds,  but if not,  here are  a  few activities  that you could try organising with friends, family and colleagues.

Fundraising ideas and tips 

  • Take part in one of our  upcoming fundraising events   such as  The Charity Firewalk
  • Have a film & tv themed party -   Invite your friends over for  a party, take inspiration from filming  at BCLM  including the Official Home of BBC's TV Series Peaky Blinders  - dress up 1920s style and ask your guests for a small donation towards preserving the Museum's historic buildings.
  • Have a bostin' Black Country bash. Fly the Black Country flag  and  cook up some   hearty fittle such as faggots & gray paes, pork scratchings and real ale, encouraging your  guests to make a donation to the Museum.
  • Get active and walk around the Wrekin'. Gather a group of friends together and set a walking challenge to raise sponsors with a just giving page
  • Step back in time - wherever you are.   Ask friends and family to sponsor you to dress in vintage fashion. Pick your favourite decade and  dress to impress for a whole week in that era. Discover how to perfect your 1940s 'do'  and get the Peaky Blinder 1920s look.  Your bus journey to work never looked so good!
  • Hold a coffee and cake morning - invite your colleagues to bring along their baked goods to raise funds.
