Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre By Scarborough Maritime Heritage Centre

Scarborough is Britain's first seaside town and needs a secure site to store and exhibit its history and artefacts. We need your help to raise money to pay for a deposit on a building.

Scarborough Delivery stage

pledged of £11,060

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Over the past 5 years we have been given 1000s of photographs, documents and objects related to Scarborough's history. Our current site is a rented shop that is too small and suffers from damp. If you can help us raise £10,000 we can put a deposit down on a more secure permanent home for the collection.

What we'll deliver:

  • Purchase a secure home for the exhibitions and archives

Why it's a great idea:

Because our local history is in danger of disappearing and deserves to be saved and celebrated.

Steps to get it done:

  • If we can raise £10,000 we can put a deposit down on a new site for a permanent home.

This year is the centenary of WW1 and the tragic German bombardment of our town. By helping us raise this money you will be helping us commemorate and preserve the details of how Scarborough was affected but he Great War. Please see our website for more details.
