Welcome to The Hockey Museum’s (THM) Friends fundraising initiative.

Click the navy donate button above to discover how to donate online and become a Friend of The Hockey Museum.

More information about the Friends initiative below.


circles 4 low resInspired by the togetherness of the 'Hockey Family', the Friends of The Hockey Museum has been conceived to bring together hockey and/or heritage enthusiasts whose support will:

  1. Enable us to deliver a world-class museum and repository for hockey’s heritage
  2. Ensure the longevity of our great project.

The Hockey Museum needs to generate additional, reliable annual income streams to ensure a sustainable future and realise our ambitions. A large number of annual donations from our Friends will provide such a reliable income stream. Please help us.


How Will Your Support Make A Difference?

From humble beginnings THM earned Full Museum Accreditation from the Arts Council in 2018. We have ambitious plans but without your support we cannot deliver these. Potential future projects include:

  • The design and delivery of a superb new exhibition space;
  • The design and delivery of a new library and reading room;
  • The continued preservation and conservation of the Museum’s collections;
  • The realisation of a curriculum-focused education programme for school children;
  • The design and delivery of a dedicated education space for school groups and hockey clubs;
  • Increased accessibility to the Museum’s collections through digitisation projects;
  • The continuation of oral history interviews with members of the hockey family across all levels of the sport;
  • Continued research into the history of hockey; and
  • The continued employment of professional staff for the Museum.


We need your support to make all this happen and doing so has never been easier.

You can support The Hockey Museum from as little as £30 per annum – only £2.50 per month!


What Kind Of Friend Will You Be?

In addition to the knowledge you are supporting the creation of a world-class museum for hockey, Friends will also receive certain benefits in kind.

Please be aware that some of the benefits outlined below may not be immediately deliverable but will be realised as your generous support allows the Museum to grow.

circles 5 low resShould you wish to donate more than £100 per annum to become a Gold Medal Friend, you can do so online by setting up a regular annual donation for your desired sum or by setting up a standing order with your bank. In both instances, please see the links below.



Patrons of The Hockey Museum are an exclusive group of supporters who have made significant one-off donations to the Museum. If you are interested in becoming a Patron, please contact Head of Fundraising Philip Kimberley through our contact form to discuss the opportunity.


How To Become A Friend Of The Hockey Museum

We would prefer our Friends to sign up through the online portal LoveAdmin (which uses the Direct Debit agent GoCardless or PayPal) rather than donating by standing order. Doing so will significantly reduce the administration required to effectively manage subscriptions. THM is a largely volunteer-run, charitable organisation and reducing administration really will make a big difference. That being said, if you are uncomfortable with making online payments we would still be delighted to have you become a Friend by setting up a standing order direct to THM’s bank account.
