Thank You to all our supporters

The Hearth Trust received no money from the government towards the purchase of the property, nor receives any ongoing government support towards the maintenance and development of the property.


The Hearth Trust is hugely grateful to the many individuals and organisations who have supported us through grants and donations of money, and through donation of time and professional skills.
