THE HELICOPTER MUSEUM - An Appeal

The Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset was forced to furlough all its paid staff following
the UK government enforced closure of leisure attractions during the COVID-19 virus crisis earlier this year.
The Museum has also taken steps to minimise all expenditure in an effort to ensure survival over the coming months

However the museum has seen the loss of all its summertime programme of special events,
as well as its peak season visitors, amounting to an estimated £200,000 in near term
lost revenue and delays in completing a planned business extension, which is due to have new
learning facilities, conference space and retail and restaurant areas.

As a result the Trustees are seeking donations from supporters and the wider helicopter industry
to ensure the survival of the unique collection, please follow the link below to donate.
