Your support is vital in enabling the Museum to fulfill its mission of collecting, storing, preserving and recording Biggar and Upper Clydesdale’s rich archaeological, social and historic heritage. The museum relies on funding from a wide range of sources and there are many ways you can support us to help ensure the display, care and preservation of the collection for future generations.
There are many, varied roles for volunteers from meeting & greeting our visitors, serving at the reception desk and shop, doing our shop window display. If you like being with people and have an interest in history being a guide might appeal to you.
Your support is making a difference
The financial contributions from the Friends of Biggar & Upper Clydesdale Museum are invaluable to the running of the museum.
To date the Friends have kindly given funds to buy a whole variety of items including conservation materials for our extensive archive of photographs and improving the packing & storing of items such as Queen Victoria’s mourning dress, a laminator, a lectern, a ‘medieval’ seal matrix, a badge-maker and funded a story-teller! All much appreciated.
