Boiler Appeal

We are looking to raise a further £100,000 to complete the boiler. Fantastic progress has been made by HBSS, with your help we will complete and fit it into the frames.

The majority of the copper stays have now been manufactured and fitted, although at a higher price than originally estimated due to increased material costs. Still required are a number of Steel Stays @ £7, Copper Stays @ £20 and Crown Stays @ £50. As well as the above we are looking for help to purchase Longitudinal Stays, the Cladding plus the Grate and Ashpan.

We estimate that these items will cost in the region of £100,000.


Any amount you can donate is welcome and if you are a UK tax payer it will attract 25% Gift Aid.
