National Coal Mining Museum
Kingston Unity Friendly Society is incredibly proud of its partnership with the National Coal Mining Museum. NCM is local to our society Head Quarters in Wakefield and illustrates life in an industry with a great heritage in the area. Many Friendly societies were established in collieries, as miners chose to join schemes to save money every week in order to provide for themselves or their families in times of sickness or death.
Kingston Unity has chosen to sponsor the Art Cart at the museum providing art materials for children visiting the museum. We are also working with the museum to produce an exhibit about friendly societies and their heritage so we look forward to seeing that.
Kingston Unity has also sponsored a school trip to the museum this year so that children can enjoy the wonderful Underground tour and school educational sessions that the museum has on offer and we hope to sponsor many more.
