FUNDRAISING

Fundraising is an important aspect of our work. We have previously raised funds to purchase disability buggies, presentation displays, and interpretation panels. We also supported the National Lottery-funded Fortress Dover project where we raised £6000 for the renovation and installation of the WW1 Anti-Aircraft Gun which was then fired every weekend as part of a Gun Drill re-enactment. This genuine 3-inch gun is the only one of its type anywhere in the World that can still fire. We have recently raised £5000 for our Constables Project which is seeing fruition with the Kitchen Garden Project. We also raised £2500 for the Friends of Dover Castle Dover Community Time Capsule Project where we were lead partners.

Income Streams

Membership subscriptions This is our main income and thank you to all who become members and pay subscriptions. It is also important that if you are a taxpayer in the UK you GIFT AID to us as that gives us effectively gives us an extra 25% of the money we raise from membership. We applied to HMRC and they deemed us to be a qualifying charity whereby our membership qualifies for Gift Aid, so please tick the box on the membership application or send us an email advising you wish us to claim GIFT AID – this could give us an extra £500 a year!
