Gifts in Wills


The Arkwright Society wants to ensure that Cromford Mills continue to be as dynamic, innovative and visionary as they were when Richard Arkwright first built them in the 18th century. However, we rely on the generosity of donations to continue our work.

Making a will is important and we fully recognise that your friends and family come first. However, after you have provided for them you may wish to consider leaving a gift in your will to the Arkwright Society.

However small or large, every penny of every gift will help the Arkwright Society to continue its valuable work and make a difference to people’s lives.

You can help us to continue our work by leaving a gift in your will.
