The Blandford Fashion Museum is run entirely by volunteers and relies on donations and entrance tickets to maintain our beautiful collection. Lime Tree House was opened to the public as a home for the fashion collection in 1995. This beautiful Georgian house was built by John and William Bastard after the great fire of Blandford in 1731.
The Fashion Museum was awarded full registered museum status in 2001, conservation and dating of costumes is of the utmost importance and archives are kept up to date . The Museum is managed entirely by voluntary staff and as the years have progressed it has gained a reputation for its beautiful exhibits and friendly atmosphere.
Additional attractions include a resources room, for use by students studying fashion and textiles. In addition there are suitcases containing items of costume and accessories which can be hired by schools.
Making donations through CharityGiving is simple, and you can use most debit or credit cards, or paypal.
CharityGiving is operated by The Dove Trust, a charity with almost 30 years' experience of helping individuals, charities and good causes globally, so your giving is safe and secure. Your donation goes to The Dove Trust who allocate it to an account for this page, and then it is paid out along with all the other donations and gift aid tax reclaimed, minus the costs involved.
CharityGiving will reclaim gift aid tax on your donation (if you are a UK taxpayer), meaning any donation is worth around 25% more. They also take a lot less to cover costs than most other fundraising websites, so more of your money goes to charity!
Thanks again for your support!
