On 20th March 2020 the Vindolanda Trust had to close its doors to both Roman Vindolanda and the Roman Army Museum in response to the fight against COVID-19. ALL the Trust's operating income comes from admissions to our sites, spend in our shops and cafes and from donations. As the majority of our income stream has stopped we have launched this survival appeal to help keep the Vindolanda Trust operating behind the scenes until we can re-open.

This year we are celebrating our 50th birthday all year. We hope that you will be able to celebrate with us and show your support through this tough time. We desperately need your support and know that even the smallest amounts will collectively make a difference to us.

We have created a selection of 'Virtual Birthday Presents' that you can gift us to celebrate our birthday year and aid us in our recovery from these unprecendented events. These are a little bit of levity in tough times and we hope you enjoying picking out a present for us as much as we will receiving them.

These virtual gifts will be available for purchase throughout the whole of our birthday year. Click donate to see what is on our wish list.
