We are a self funding Registered Charity, Reg. No. 1117707.
Our income comes mainly from publishing our quarterly magazine, “The Telephone”, named after our long lost local newspaper, to which our supporters subscribe annually thereby becoming Subscription Members. We hold regular events & exhibitions, both at the Heritage Centre & around the borough with our ever popular, & well attended, Roadshows.
School visits are catered for and we have a thriving Genealogy section which is always well attended. Importantly we do receive some donations for which we are extremely grateful.
Fundraising is an ongoing process in order to maintain The Centre & pay our necessary running costs & overheads. The upkeep of our museum, which houses many artefacts all of which are pertinent to Smethwick’s rich & diverse history, is also a major consideration.
During an enormously challenging year for the Centre, we have been delighted by the messages & empathy that we have received from our Subscription Members & supporters. They have recognised that, being unable to be open to the public (because of the Covid 19 pandemic) has severely restricted the level of income we have been able to generate. It is clear that Smethwick Heritage Centre holds a special place in the hearts of so very many people.
By making a donation you are helping us to continue to preserve the history of Smethwick & to continue holding our popular Roadshows, exhibitions & events at the Centre. These include talks, school reunions and a veritable plethora of other memorable gatherings. Educational visits by local children too who are often amazed at the artefacts we have on show. A place where folk can come to meet and share their memories of Smethwick & it’s illustrious past, as well as look forward to the future. Your donation will make a difference.
