The Trust depends entirely on its own resources and receives no public money. Our work has attracted a number of volunteers, donors and close associates, but recent improvements completed at our premises, and plans for future expansion have led us to establish a more organised network of contacts and supporters through an association of Friends. We hope that those who are interested in the academic work promoted by the Trust, or more generally in the history and culture of the countries covered, will become Friends, whether they live in the UK or overseas.
There are a number of ways you can help the Trust – first and foremost by becoming a Friend (£30 annual subscription, £400 life membership – for an application form please contact the Administrator on firstname.lastname@example.org or on 01223 356841, or download the form here).
Friends receive newsletters and advance information about lectures and seminars and other activities, including our development plans. As part of the ‘family’ they are invited to our traditional Summer Garden Party and other social functions, and are always welcome to visit the Trust. We also highly value help from our Friends in providing ideas, contacts and advice, as well as financial support.
UK tax payers can, at no extra cost, help the Trust further by completing the gift aid declaration on the Friends form.
Completed forms and cheques should be sent to:
