Wimpole Renewable Energy - Plant Room Open Days

An opportunity to find out more about how our recently installed ground source heat pump is keeping our visitors warm

  • Booking not needed
  • Admission applies

Until last year, Wimpole was using around 35,000 litres of oil each year to heat the Hall and Old Rectory Restaurant. Last year we installed a ground source heat pump which uses one third of the energy used by our old oil burners. Pop in to the Plant Room between 11am-3pm when you visit the Hall to find our more about the project from our Renewables Volunteers.

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
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

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:

  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 Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
