In 1912, David Parr inscribed ‘If you do anything, do it well’ on his Drawing Room wall – and that’s our inspiration. David Parr House is a tiny venue with big ambitions to create a £1m endowment fund so we can deliver an inspiring programme of exhibitions, events, tours and learning activities. As a small independent charity we receive no government or public funding for running costs, ongoing conservation and maintenance of the house and collection, or indeed for our education and research work. That’s why we need your help to build our fund and save the house for future generations.

Until 2021 every £1 you give will be doubled by the Heritage Lottery Fund. That means your £10 donation (with Gift Aid) becomes £25; £40 becomes £100; £120 becomes £300, and so on.
