Support Us

We, like many charities, rely on our supporters – who visit, join us for events, donate towards research and volunteer. We would not be able to tell Octavia’s story and preserve this beautiful building without you.

If you can’t visit or don’t have a need for our research facility right now, but would still like to ensure this building and its unique contents stay in the public realm for future generations, we would be honoured if you’d consider a donation.

 

While we can, and do, apply for funding for projects, very rarely do funders support core costs – the day to day costs – and this is where you can help, directly.

 

Please support us via any of the methods below:
