The Vivat Trust Needs Your Support

Since its formation in 1981 the Vivat Trust has fought tirelessly to do all it can to bring back to life beautiful and often unique buildings which may have otherwise disappeared from our architectural landscape.  Our success has only been made possible with the generous support of a small pool of individual donors, corporate sponsors, the Heritage Lottery Fund and charitable foundations to whom we are indebted.  

Would you like to share your passion for the nation's architectural heritage?

Here is how you could help.

Become a Friend
Friends of the Vivat Trust are with us every step of the way - helping us to decide which properties we select and sharing in our plans to bring them back to life.  In becoming a Friend you will also be sharing in our commitment to keep traditional building skills alive and to broadening the access to our heritage through education programmes and community engagement.

There are four categories of membership:

Individuals                        £25.00   an annual payment

Joint                                £45.00   an annual payment

Life (Individual)                £300.00 a one off payment

Life (joint)                       £500.00 a one off payment

As a Friend we will be pleased to offer you in return: 

  • Exclusive behind the scenes tours of the buildings during their restoration
  • A regular e-newsletter with our latest news, articles and project updates.
  • Priority booking for properties as they become available as holiday lets.
  • Advanced notice of tickets for our special events including our prestigious annual lecture.

To join please download our application form

Make a one off donation
One off donations, no matter what size, enable the Vivat Trust to fund current restoration projects such as Wellbrook Manor - a unique fourteenth century cruck framed manor house in Herefordshire, which is in desperate need of restoration if it is ever to become accessible to the public.

One off donations can be made by sending a cheque made payable to The Vivat Trust Limited to the address below.

Make a regular donation
Each month at least 12 properties in a critical state of disrepair are presented to us.  We cannot possibly respond to all the appeals that are made of us but with regular donations, we can take on more deserving cases in the knowledge that your support will be there for us to draw upon. A gift from as little as £10 a month would make all the difference!

To make regular donations please download our standing order form and present it to your bank.

Donations can be sent to:

The Vivat Trust, Garden Barn, Wellbrook Manor, Peterchurch, Hereford HR2 0SS
