You can help Suffolk’s past have a future

We have launched a new fundraising campaign inviting all Suffolk’s citizens to play a part in preserving Suffolk’s archival heritage.

Funds raised will go towards meeting remaining construction costs at The Hold to safeguard the county’s archives, and the fitting-out of the interior of the building to the high standards that visitors from all walks of life deserve.

Donate securely through Virgin Money Giving

The Suffolk Archives Foundation wants everyone to have an opportunity to be remembered as a supporter of The Hold, and has commissioned a special book for donors to sign, which itself will become part of Suffolk’s historical archives!


The book has been specially crafted by a local bookbinder and will be kept at The Hold and displayed.

For a gift of £20, donors will be invited to attend a special ‘signing ceremony’ to put their name in the book when The Hold opens.

For a gift of £100, donors will be invited to attend the signing ceremony, an invitation to a launch event at The Hold, and will also receive a commemorative model brick.

Names of donors at both levels will also be put into a draw for the chance to sign a special area of the interior wall of The Hold.

To make your donation, please visit our Make Your Mark page on Virgin Money Giving.

Thank you for your support!
