Become a Friend of the Trust

The Trust depends entirely on its own resources and receives no public money. Your support is essential to our continued efforts.

There are a number of ways you can help the Trust – by becoming an Annual or Life Friend (£30 annual subscription, £400 life membership), or making a donation.

Friends receive newsletters and advance information about lectures and seminars and other activities, including our development plans. As part of the ‘family’ they are invited to our traditional Summer Garden Party and other social functions, and are always welcome to visit the Trust. We also highly value help from our Friends in providing ideas, contacts and advice, as well as financial support.  Recent improvements at the trust include the installation of a new AV projector and screen for our lecture room, thanks in part to the generous support of our Friends.

UK tax payers can, at no extra cost, help the Trust further by completing the gift aid declaration on the Friends form.
