Gift Aid

Gift Aid is a government scheme, which enables charities to reclaim the basic rate tax you have paid as a UK taxpayer, this is an extra 25p for every £1 of the total paid.

We would be very grateful if you would consider making a Gift Aid Declaration when you visit, is at no extra cost to yourself and takes seconds.  If you were to Gift Aid a family ticket at £21 we would get an extra £5.25 from the HMRC making a total of £26.25.

This extra income is very important to small independent museums like ourselves and helps ensure that we can continue to keep Yorkshire’s farming history and heritage alive for future generations.
