Gift Aid

Include a voluntary donation of 10% and by paying this you enable us to reclaim the tax back on the whole amount paid as part of the Governments Gift Aid Scheme. For us, that's currently worth an extra 25p for every pound you pay, which means that your donation will provide even more support for our vital preservation, restoration and educational work.

We are enormously grateful for every donation received regardless of it's value.
Each person who supports us becomes a part of our unique history and, more importantly, our future.

Gift Aid donors must pay enough UK income tax and/or capital gains tax to cover the amount of tax a charity will reclaim.
