Beaulieu’s National Motor Museum has announced that classic enthusiasts and their families can now support its work by donating classics through its new Memorial Motor Scheme.

The scheme helps families wondering what to do with a loved one’s vehicle after they have passed away.

Beaulieu’s Helen Merrill, said: ‘With Memorial Motors, we are able to take these vehicles, to provide invaluable funding for the museum and also a fitting tribute to the enthusiast who loved and cared for them. Not only will the owner be acknowledged in the museum and on our website, but their ownership story and legacy timeline will become part of our own story.’

Director of collections, Andrea Bishop, added: ‘Those that are not accepted into the collection are subject to an additional conversation with the donor. We explain the scheme and ask how the prospective donor would feel about their gift benefitting the museum, but not becoming part of the collection. If the scheme is right for them, the Development Team works with partners to organise the pick-up, clearance and auction process, making sure that all matters are dealt with sensitively.’
