Help us raise money, for our super Saturday families.

If you are a member of a community group, such as a rotary group, or a round table, a faith group, or a WI, or if you are part of a school or college who likes to fundraise, we would love to hear from you.

We can offer lots of ways to get involved with Derby Museums, and we are always happy to come and speak at one of your groups.
We are also currently looking for sponsors for our Super Saturdays and our Summer Specials.

To run a day Super Saturday, jam packed full of free family activities, costs £150. Could your group raise enough money to sponsor one of our Saturdays?

If you would like to us to speak at one of your events, or would like to hear more about getting involved with Derby Museums, call Jenny on 01332 641901 or email
