Fundraising

As a charity, to ensure we are able to keep operating, we rely on money raised from various fundraising initiatives held throughout the year, as well as on generous donations from friends of Heritage House.

If you would like to make a donation, or hold an event for our benefit, please visit or get in touch by phone or email.

How you can help:

Changes have been made to the way in which we receive some funding from Social Services so that donations for both day to day expenses and capital projects are needed more than ever.

Give as you Live

 Did you know that you can shop online and help Heritage House while you do so? Give as you Live is a shopping and price comparison site. Using their website you can shop at over 4,000 online stores and for every purchase you make a percentage of what you pay will be donated to the charity of your choice.

Heritage House is one such charity so, if you wanted to buy a digital camera from Amazon for example, go to www.giveasyoulive.com, sign up (it’s free) and select Heritage House as your charity. Next click on ‘Stores’, select Amazon and then look for your camera. From then on you shop as normal but – and here’s the important difference – by shopping via Give as you Live you’ll be donating 1.5% of what you spend to Heritage House. And it will cost you nothing!

A small selection of the thousands of participating retailers…

So far we have raised over £400 this way – it could so easily be much more if you and all your friends signed up!

200 Club:

The 200 Club is made up of friends of Heritage House who pay an annual subscription and take part in a prize draw every month. All the proceeds after prizes go to supporting Heritage House. Membership is still only £12 per annum, and we award a total of £95 every month (made up of prizes of £50, £20, £10 and three prizes of £5). In addition we award double at Christmas.

Please consider supporting us in this way. If you have any queries, please call Helen or Rachel on: 01328 711333

We are asking for donations to:

Support our ambulance fund:

Our three ambulances and Wheelchair Accessible Car are fitted with tail lifts and tracking to secure wheelchairs. Each week they cover the 250 square miles of the area we serve to transport our Day Visitors from Kettlestone, Fakenham, Walsingham, Burnham Market and the Creakes, Hunstanton,Brancaster,
Thornham and the smaller villages and hamlets in between, as well as from Wells itself.

This transport costs £15,000 a year and we also need to build up a reserve for their replacement.

Support improvements to our facilities.

Support staff training – it is essential that we keep staff caring skills up to date and also to conform with regulations – we need at least £2,000 a year to cover the minimum requirements.

Support our ongoing running costs – it costs us £120,000 per year just to open our doors.

We would greatly appreciate any help you may be able to give, whether for these items or in any other way.
