Friends of Worcestershire Archives

The Friends of Worcestershire Archives are a charitable organisation who value and support Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service. They help us by:

  • Raising funds to support the archives
  • Providing volunteers
  • Advocating on behalf of the service

Donating to the Friends

The Friends fund specific projects, buy specialist equipment and purchase archives that would otherwise go into private hands as well as pay for repairs and conservation.

If you would like to support the work of the Friends, please contact them here or simply donate now.

A gift in your will

Leaving a bequest to Friends of Worcestershire Archives is one of the most valuable ways you can help to preserve and continue to make Worcestershire’s heritage accessible. Even a small consideration in your will can make a huge difference. All donations will support the work of the friends.

History-inspired gifts

We have a small shop on Level 2 of The Hive in Worcester where all kinds of history-inspired gifts can be found. These include books on local subjects that can be difficult to find elsewhere, jewellery, pottery and seasonal items that make perfect gifts for history lovers. Please come and have a look.
