    You can now adopt a document at Worcestershire Archive Service!

    • 1st December 2014

    Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service have now introduced an ‘Adopt a Document’ scheme.  This scheme allows you to contribute directly to securing a future for the 12 miles of Archives we hold here at The Hive.

    For £30, you can select a document from our list of interesting and varied items to adopt.  In return, you will receive a colour adoption certificate acknowledging your support, and an invitation to an Adopter Event for a tour of the Conservation Studio and Strongrooms at The Hive and the option to purchase a digital copy of the document at a reduced rate.

    If you have a favourite document that does not appear on our list, £80 enables you to adopt any document dating to the 19th or 20th centuries and £200 for a document dating to the 18th century or earlier.  In addition to the above benefits, a ‘book plate’ will attached to (or near!) your document, and your name will be listed on our sponsors board in The Hive.

    For £300 your adoption can acknowledge a significant life event such as a christening, graduation, marriage or special gift in memoriam.  In return to the benefits outlined above, you will also receive acknowledgement of your gift in our online catalogue, information and invites to all our events, and a free digital copy of your document (dependent on size).

    Whatever option you choose, this is an exciting opportunity for you to contribute directly to ongoing work to ensure the archives are available to all for many years to come. Find out more about the scheme by viewing our Adopt a Document leaflet

    A list of documents for adoption is available on our website and from the Original Archive Area at The Hive, where staff will be able to  help with the adoption process. For more information please contact our Conservation service here.
