How we're funded
We cover our the costs of running the house, estate and our day-to-day activities in a variety of ways.
Donations to our loan appeal
In order to purchase the Scargill estate in 2009, our trustees received loans totalling £1.03 million from Lee Abbey and others. In order to repay these loans, we have launched the Move the Mountain Appeal. Gifts Aid on donations to this appeal is returned to the loan repayment fund. Almost half of the amount borrowed was repaid in March 2011, but we still need to raise over half a million pounds.
Scargill’s bursary fund
We operate a bursary fund which pays for people to visit Scargill when they could not otherwise afford to do so. Paying guests often contribute into this fund; please let us know if you would like to do so.
