Muck in at Mount Stewart

A Muck In day is all about family members of all ages having great fun together while working alongside members of our team to genuinely help the National Trust care for the land around Mount Stewart. Bring a picnic and get stuck in.

  • Booking advisable
  • Free event (admission applies)

Our first Muck In day, 17th June will be working on the demesne restoring the the natural woodland and helping to improve biodiversity and the habitat of our native red squirrel. We will be cutting down invasive plant species such as Rhododendron and snowberry, building a bonfire to burn the cut down material and this will provide us with an opportunity to toast a few marshmallows as a reward for all the hard work. This is suitable for all ages.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid donations must be supported by a valid Gift Aid declaration and a Gift Aid declaration can only cover donations made by an individual for him/herself or for him/herself and members of his/her family.
