You have helped us raise over £36,500 so far towards our winter appeal. Thank you to all those who have helped us so far! All of your donations make a huge difference.
We are still asking for your support to help us reach our goal of £45,000 by March 2019, so that we can, this year, create a new Older People’s Action Team, as well as fund practical changes to the galleries such as improved seating, creating social spaces, ramp access, and clearer labelling.
We will also be able to continue our hugely popular Meet Me at the Museum social workshops which embrace three key areas that promote good brain health in older age: cognitive stimulation; physical activity; and social interaction.*

All donations, whether a regular monthly gift of £5 or a single gift of £1,000, will help us reach our £45,000 target, keeping our doors open for free and ensuring that we are able to welcome the widest possible audience to the Museum.
- £5 a month would keep the conversation going over a cup of tea, either in the Ashmolean at one of our popular social workshop sessions or at a local care home.
- A single gift of £50 can train an Alzheimer’s Society Dementia Champion and 100 Dementia Friends to support dementia-friendly visits to the Museum.
- £250 could support heightened access to the collection through digital innovations such as 3D printed objects.
- £1,000 can fund changes to the galleries such as improved seating or ramp access and clearer labelling.
