Donate to the museum, or sponsor an object to help raise funds for a Heritage Lottery bid
The Priest’s House Museum Trust has applied to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for £1.1 million towards its Revival Project, a project intended to enhance community/ visitor experience through a museum which meets the standards of the 21st century and which will carry on for future generations.
In total, we need to raise £400,000 ourselves in match funding to obtain the money from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Please help us achieve our target by sponsoring an object or giving a donation on-line.

Every donation we receive is truly appreciated and will make a real difference to the fundraising effort for the museum. Donations can be gift-aided which will make your sponsorship even more valuable to us.
* If for any reason the Revival Project does not ahead, the money will be used for the care of the collections.
Gift Aid your donation
The museum as a charity, can claim the tax paid on your donation, however large or small, through Gift Aid. Presently this equates to an additional 25p for every £1 you give making your donation even more valuable to us.
