There is so much to do! As a charity the project relies on contributions from individuals, trusts, foundations and organisations.

It is with your support and donations that the charity can begin to conserve and make public the many stories that are hidden within  the David Parr House.

Donate with JustGiving

We are extremely grateful for any donation, however large or small, to help us carry out our work.

£25 allows us to cover the house’s running costs for a day.
£100 gives us 2 hours of a paint conservator’s time.
£1,000 pays for the design and printing of a brochure about the house.
£5,000 allows us to create an exhibition or outreach event.
£90,000 is the amount of matchfunding we need in order to access grants to conserve and stabilise the interior of the house and its unique ‘wall art’.
