Supporters and Legacies

Howden Heritage Centre relies on its supporters for continuing to donate towards the operating costs of the Centre. Although grants are available for specific projects, day to day expenses need to be paid from the funds generated by donations and/or legacies.

Supporters of the Heritage Centre

The two main ways you can help are to become:

  • A friend of Howden Heritage Centre – by donating a monthly or annula sum you would be directly helping to keep the Centre open, operating and developing;

  • A volunteer – you could volunteer to take part in the activities of the Centre including its projects. How about leading a walk around the Blue Plaque Trail or assisting in one of the various projects and exhibitions during the year?

You can ask for details of either or both by contacting the Civic Society at its postal address or emailing:
