Why support us?

The Museum tells the story of the motor industry in Britain, celebrating the cars the industry has produced and the incredible people who designed and built them.

As an educational charity, with your support, the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust can continue to collect, conserve, share and inspire. Delivering long-term positive impacts on the lives of individuals through its work.

From first cars, cars owned by parents, vehicles once watched in movies, or days worked at one of the many British motor manufacturing plants. The collection provides visitors with an opportunity to share stories and reminisce about an industry that impacts the whole of society. 

In addition, the Museum delivers learning programmes to inspire young people, outreach reminiscence sessions at care homes and dementia cafes as well as volunteering opportunities  that encourage the development of new skills and help to combat loneliness.

There are a number of ways to support the Museum including through the Adopt a Car scheme, by donating directly to the work of the Trust using the links below, signing up for Payroll Giving with your employer or by leaving a gift in your Will.

Donate now to help tell the story of Britain's motor industry, the people's industry, now and in the future.
