Become a Friend of the Mills Archive Trust

To join the Friends you need to set up a recurring monthly donation. All regular donations are gratefully accepted and acknowledged as they help to offset our regular costs.

Pick from our recommended monthly donation amounts or specify your own amount. The choices below give examples of how your regular support would help us now and continuing into the future.

Alternatively, you can pay by standing order by downloading and completing this form.

Membership benefits

  • DISCOUNT IN THE MILLS ARCHIVE SHOP: Friends receive a coupon code offering a discount on book purchases in our shop, and one for high-resolution images. This discount does not apply to post and packing charges, which are outside our control.
  • EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE EXHIBITIONS/EVENTS: Come and see what happens behind the scenes. Two invitations to all our Garden Parties and Exhibitions.
  • A 6-MONTHLY NEWSLETTER, MILL MEMORIES: Our popular A5 newsletter features items from our collection, news of the Archive and features about the people involved. Back issues are all available online and you can chose to have the online version instead of the printed one.
  • FREE RESEARCH: We offer Friends a yearly allowance of one hour’s free research by Archive staff (applicable once a Friend has been with us for a year). Subsequent research is charged at half the standard public rate.
  • COPYRIGHT PRIVILEGES: Friends can request copyright fees (usually £50 per image) to be reduced or waived altogether. This benefit is particularly attractive to Friends writing newsletter articles, journal publications and guide books. Larger books may attract a small charge depending on circumstances.
Your Donation
Boost your donation by 25p of Gift Aid for every £1 you donate.

I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference. We will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that you give us now and in the future and over the previous four years. If your address or tax circumstances change, do let us know.
