Support us


Without the generous support of members of the public who assist the museum through donations, we would not be able to maintain the museum and its collections for years to come. We preserve the history The Sherwood Foresters, Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters and the Mercian Regiment for (Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire).

Museum of the Mercian Regiment (WFR Collction) is small museum and a registered charity (Charity Number 1001226). We are very reliant on donations to maintain the museum and its collections. Any donation of any size (big or small) will help the museum exist for many years to come.
