Support the VCH Derbyshire

The work in Derbyshire is being funded by the Derbyshire VCH Trust, a voluntary society which anyone interested in its work can join.

In addition to its members' subscriptions, the trust receives considerable support from Derbyshire County Council, which is responsible for the Local Studies Libraries at Matlock, Chesterfield and across the county, the Derbyshire Record Office and the Derbyshire Museum Service. Several other local authorities in the county have also supported the trust with grants and subscriptions.

To find out how you could make a contribution to VCH Derbyshire, please contact the Trust's Treasurer, Cathrin Wharton, on 07775 780045 or by email
