If every website visitor donated £1.00, we could raise almost double the amount raised by all our fundraising in 2018, and we would safeguard our Heritage for another year.

Support Us

Pembroke Dock Heritage Centre is run by Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust, which is a charity registered in England and Wales, number 1120476.  The Trust relies on income from Heritage Centre admissions, sales from the Gift Shop and Coffee Shop, as well as charitable donations from visitors and members of the public.

How can you help?

By paying for admission or by spending money in the Gift Shop or Coffee Shop, you are already supporting the Trust, but if you would like to help further there are a number of ways you can do this.  Admissions can be accepted under the Gift Aid scheme when topped up by a small voluntary donation.  By choosing to Gift Aid your admission, we are able to claim a small amount of your tax back. To find out more about Gift Aid, click here (this will open a new window and take you to the official website).


There are a number of collection boxes in the Heritage Centre, and we are grateful for any amount of additional donation from our visitors. This type of donation can also be given through the Gift Aid scheme.

We do receive donations through other means. If you would like details of other ways that we can accept donations, please contact us, or click here to donate now through our Local Giving page.

It is also possible to support the work of the Trust through your online activity, such as shopping or using comparison sites. This doesn’t involve spending any extra money, but is given to the Trust when you make your purchase. Click here for more details.


If you would like to receive a little something in recognition of your donation, please consider the following tiers of subscription, we can also accept Gift Aid on these. Please click the categories below in yellow to find out more information.

Why does Pembroke Dock Sunderland Trust need donations?

At present neither the Trust nor the Heritage Centre receives any kind of funding to help with its daily running costs such as rent, utility bills or maintenance costs.

In order to continue with all its activities, the Trust has a number of essential running costs. Without paying its way, the Heritage Centre would be forced to close, and the Trust would have nowhere to store or display the collections of historic objects, and further work on the Sunderland project would not be able to continue.

The Trust is always looking for funding opportunities elsewhere, but most funders will only fund projects with special activities and will not cover the cost of day-to-day activities or overheads.

How will my donation help?

In addition to profit made in the Gift Shop and Coffee Shop, and income received from Admissions, the Trust needs to generate £20,000 each year from donations and corporate sponsorship.

This money can not only help to keep the Heritage Centre going by paying for essential running costs, but will also support our work with historic items including those recovered from Sunderland T9044. It will also enable us to continue our important work with the community in Pembroke Dock.  This includes work with local and regional organisations, in providing volunteer placements, back-to-work schemes, educational opportunities for schools and families and a range of other benefits to the people of Pembroke Dock and the wider community.

While the Trust is grateful for all offers of financial support, we may not be able to accept some donations if conditions on how they are spent are imposed. However, if you would like to help sponsor an existing activity or project please contact us for further details.
