Friends of National Glass Centre - Staff Salary Deduction Scheme

Would you like to become more involved with the arts and culture in Sunderland and access some exclusive benefits at National Glass Centre? National Glass Centre is offering all University of Sunderland Staff the chance to become a Friend of National Glass Centre at a significantly discounted rate.

The Friends of National Glass Centre scheme has been established for many years and provides a number of benefits and additional activities specifically for members. 

Benefits of membership include:

  (†Discount applied on food and beverages purchased by the card holder only.  Daily until 17.00)

The Friends Committee regularly organise visits to other UK galleries and museums that include talks and presentations from artists and curators.  These trips are well organised and in the past have included visits to York Stained Glass Centre and Blackwell Arts and Crafts House, Bowness on Windermere.

The scheme is devised to bring together people who share an interest in contemporary arts and culture and Sunderland’s heritage and who wish to support and be more involved in National Glass Centre.  Support is provided in a variety of ways: through volunteer work, fundraising activities, feedback, events organisation, subscription fees and most importantly, by being an ambassador for National Glass Centre.

This new University salary deduction scheme will allow a one off yearly payment to be made directly from staff salaries.  We are pleased to offer Staff, Friends Membership at a significantly reduced rate of £15 for one year. This is a time limited staff offer only available until 31st July 2014.

National Glass Centre makes a major contribution to the cultural offer in the City providing high quality arts experiences to a wide range of people. Staff contributions will go directly to support the Learning and Engagement work of National Glass Centre and will ensure the Centre remains free for everyone to enjoy. 

To set up a salary deduction payment through the University please go to and complete the application form and return to Human Resources.

To join without using the salary deduction scheme please call our Visitor Services team on 0191 515 5555 or email:  Alternatively call in at the Visitor Services desk.
