Memberships and visitor income cover only a third of our costs. As a charity, we rely on donations and legacies.
Our latest appeal is our textiles appeal. Looking after a collection of such rare and diverse textiles, from royal beds to costumes, carpets and tapestries, is an enormously challenging job. We urgently need your help to look after these rare textiles, many of which are in a very fragile condition and in need of specialist care and repair.
Other appeals include raising money for the Lake District to repair stretches of footpaths, Quarry Bank to help open up access to the property for the first time, and halting 600 years of decay and disrepair at Knole in Kent. Or you might wish to support our For Ever, For Everyone appeal which allows us to use the funds wherever the need is greatest.
