There are three main ways you can help: Donate, Volunteer or Shop!
If you shop on Amazon we can receive a minimum of 5% of what you spend. What you buy costs the same – it’s just that we get the referrers commission fro what you buy. So imagine a big Christmas shop also means you’re supporting out work in protecting threatened buildings. Shop using the link above – or this rather ugly link (and share it with your friends please)
Sites besides Amazon
Spend and Raise works in a similar way to the Amazon link above and we’ve raised more than £500 recently simply from people like you shopping online as you normally do.
Again you need to use this link (or the one in the top right of our site)
Expedia for travel – we get between 1% and 6% of what you spend (you pay the same prices)
M&S we get a donation of around 3% of the price of your new sofa or new knickers!
EasyJet Holidays – 3%
Asda Direct (all sorts of household things) 0 to 7%
B&Q Diy – donation up to 3.5%
BBC Shop 4.5%
Boots - makeup and smellies etc donate up to 8%
Dell computers 4%
Gap - clothes 7%
Heal’s – swanky furniture
and many more – for the full list please go here.
You won’t pay any more than normal prices and you can simply shop for things you would have bought anyway. Please have a go and let us know what you think.
The simplest way to donate is by post or online. Use Justgiving and UK tax payers can automatically add 28% to their donation using Gift Aid. Of course, it also works if you don’t pay tax. Please use the link below:

Over the last few years our volunteers have helped us with everything from cataloguing the artefacts in Newman Brothers to transcribing oral history interviews. We appreciate every moment you spend helping us and we are delighted that we now offer a volunteering programme me with over 20 different roles – so plenty of ways to get involved, learn new skills, meet new people and support the work of the Trust.
