The QOH and QRIH museums have now closed and artefacts have been moved to Warwick where they are in storage. Work began on the museum building in March 2017 and has now been made safe and secure. There will now be a short pause before the design phase begins in early 2018. The aspiration is to open the new museum in early autumn 2018.
To those members who have donated, THANK YOU, your generosity has enabled us to get to this point. However, the fund raising committee calculates that we are about £300k short of the sum required to run the museum on a daily basis. The two appeals by letter to date were specifically targeted to those who we thought would want to help.
There will be many Regimental Comrades who we may have missed in the appeals. If you are one, please consider making a donation and also encourage everyone in the Regimental family that you know to also make a donation. Every contribution to the appeal, regardless of amount, makes a difference.
Details of how to make a donation can found in the museum website. Simply follow the ‘Donate Today’ tab at the top right hand side of the page.
