As a self-funding charity, we urgently need your help
The restoration and re-presentation of Hillsborough Castle and Gardens was made possible by the National Lottery Heritage Fund,
Mark Pigott KBE KSTJ, Garfield Weston Foundation, the Clore Duffield Foundation, the Foyle Foundation, the Wolfson Foundation and other generous donors.
As a self-funding charity, we urgently need your support. We're facing a £95m shortfall in our finances this year as a result of the Coronavirus. We would gratefully appreciate any donation, whatever you can afford. Thank you.
