Our work

Thanks for your support: Tag-a-Tile has now finished 

In aid of The Vyne’s £5.4m roof project, this fundraiser allowed visitors to write messages on roof tiles that were then fitted onto the new roof for centuries to come. With Tag-a-Tile now finished, we managed to raise over £62,000. Thank you so much to everyone who got involved. We couldn’t have saved this former Tudor palace without you.
