Become a Patron

Becoming a Patron of the Soldiers of Shropshire Museum helps secure the future of the collections and provides an enduring platform to inspire our audiences with the contributions sacrifices of the Shropshire Regiments over nearly 300 years.

The Commitment:

By becoming a Life Patron you would sign a Direct Debit mandate agreeing to commit to supporting the Museum during your lifetime by making a minimum monthly gift-aided donation of £25. As examples:

  • A donation of £50 increases to £750 per year
  • A donation of £25 increases to £375 per year

The benefits to you:

  • You can claim Income Tax Relief on your donation. To donate £1 you pay:
    • 80p if a basic rate taxpayer
    • 60p if a higher rate taxpayer
    • 55p if an additional rate taxpayer
  • Receipt of the annual Life Patrons’ Newsletter
