Buckley Bears' journey continues...

The Curtis Museum in Alton is home to one of the finest local history collections in Hampshire, exploring 100 million years of the region’s past. The museum’s Childhood Gallery showcases a small sample of the 5,000 items in our toy collection, packed with objects spanning three centuries. Regularly used by our local community; the gallery is approximately 30 years old and in need of updating and repair.

We've recently been successful in raising £2,000 through the #BuckleyBear crowdfunding campaign. This support will go towards vital redevelopment work needed to bring Buckley Bear home to the Curtis Museum. 

There is still time to support the Childhood Gallery redevelopment and help create an exciting hub for hundreds of families in East Hampshire.

Gift Aid

I want all donations I've made to you in the past four years and all donations in future to be treated as Gift Aid donations until I notify you otherwise.
I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.
We will claim 25p on every £1 you donate.
