PLEASE HELP US

It costs a great deal of money to run the Lancashire Infantry Museum.

Only our traditional home in historic Fulwood Barracks is provided for us, beyond which we receive very limited official support.

We receive no official funding whatsoever for the preservation, maintenance, development and display of the collection and archives.

All work on collating the largest regimental archive in the United Kingdom, and dealing with the many hundreds of research requests which we receive, is carried out by our highly-dedicated team of volunteers, who donate many hours of their time, and without whom the Museum could not operate.

PLEASE HELP US TO PRESERVE THE MEMORY, AND TO CONTINUE TELLING THE STORY, OF LANCASHIRE’S SOLDIERS
