Weʼre raising £10,000 to Support the National Emergency Services Museum in caring for the collection as a self-funded museum.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


The National Emergency Services Museum is a self-funded organisation dedicated to the preservation of the history of the Emergency Services and their communities. We are regularly involved in local community work, wider national and international projects as well as events all over the country.

The National Emergency Services Museum is housed in a unique Victorian combined Police, Fire and Ambulance station on West Bar, opposite the Law Courts of Sheffield City Centre. In this Tardis-like building we house a treasure trove of items, from a 47 foot lifeboat to the Insurance Fire Brigade's beer tokens! With over a million items in our collection and over 50 vehicles on-site we tell the stories of the Emergency Services and society through dynamic, interactive and hands-on displays, exhibitions and events. We offer a day out where all the family can enjoy a real Fire Engine ride experience, climb a mini climbing wall, explore our smoky Blitz exhibition, jump on a Police motorbike and tread the corridor of our Victorian Police cells. With three floors jam-packed with items you can climb on, get in and try on you won't be short of things to do! With our all-new year tickets you can now visit as many times as you like within the year so you'll never miss out on our new exhibitions and most new events.

      This is a great little museum and a local landmark, I hope I will be able to take my nephews to visit in the future.

      An excellent museum and, as far as I know, the only one in UK devoted to all three emergency services - an important historical and educational resource. Good luck with the fund-raising.
