Our new Fundraising and Membership Officer Matt Dunn, takes us through the benefits of becoming a National Museums Liverpool member:
My name is Matt and I’m National Museums Liverpool’s new Fundraising and Membership Officer. My job involves looking after all of our current members and trying to spread the word about our venues and the membership scheme far and wide, so that we can get as many people as possible on board.
Why join? Well, membership fees are used to actively support our museums and galleries and in return we offer some great benefits such as discounts in our shops and cafes, invitations to special members-only events and of course we also keep you updated on events and exhibitions throughout the year.
I’ve started this role as we excitedly count down to the opening of the Museum of Liverpool on Tuesday 19 July. It’s the UK’s largest newly-built national museum for over a century and like many other people, I can’t wait to have a look around.
As part of the celebrations we’ve launched an exciting new Museum of Liverpool membership scheme. By joining, you are entitled to all the benefits of our standard scheme plus some special extras, such as an invitation to an exclusive Museum of Liverpool opening event and sponsorship of a façade panel with personal dedication and commemorative certificate. Membership is available to give as a gift too!
Fiona and Murray, two of our Museum of Liverpool members who have followed the progress of the building work said: “we have been fascinated by its giant window reflecting our wonderful River Mersey, capturing the sunlight and projecting across the waterfront.” And that’s just the view from the outside!
We think it will be a special museum for a unique city. Please visit our membership page for more information including a full list of benefits. If you’d prefer to talk to somebody about joining, why not give me a ring on 0151 478 4157 – I’d love to hear from you.
