The Bar Convent is run by The Congregaton of Jesus (registered charity 298970)

As a charity, we rely on your support to help safeguard our historic building and its collections. Donations are absolutely vital to our continuing work. If you're a UK taxpayer, we can also claim Gift Aid on your donation.

You can donate online, by post, or at donation boxes located around the convent.


What is Gift Aid?
The Gift Aid scheme allows charities like us to reclaim some of the tax on your donation from HMRC – at no cost to you. This means that for every pound you donate to us, we can claim back an extra 25p.

How can I Gift Aid my donation?
First, you must be a resident in the UK. You also need to pay enough tax to cover the amount we would reclaim.

When you donate to us online, we receive your details automatically from the Gift Aid Declaration. You don’t need to do anything else, as all administration is handled by us.

If you’re donating in person, you can also fill in a quick and simple form. Just ask one of our staff for details.

You can read further information on Gift Aid on HMRC’s website.
