Getting Involved


We rely on the support of an amazing group of volunteers who support the organisation in a variety of ways – working on the museum collection, helping with events, and running the heritage centre.

If you’re looking to…

  • meet new people and learn new skills
  • give something back to the town
  • gain confidence or simply just have fun

…then we would love to hear from you.

In the first instance, please email our trustee Jacqueline at:



Wirksworth Heritage Centre has around 60 members who support the organisation. Our membership scheme is currently being reviewed, and more information will be available here soon.



The £1.34m grant from Heritage Lottery Fund is funding around 80% of our project, and the rest comes from our own reserves and ongoing fundraising. We are still actively fundraising for the project, as well as looking for other funding to support the ongoing running of the organisation in the coming years.

If you would like to make a donation, or perhaps discuss arranging a charitable legacy gift, please contact our trustee Fiona at:
