Do you want to help preserve this wonderful House for generations to come?

If so, then read on…

We’re currently on the lookout for businesses and individuals to become Big House Heroes – raising funds to support Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust (registered charity number: 1155374).

Last year we were very fortunate to be chosen by the 2022/23 Master Cutler, Dame Julie Ann Kenny DBE DL, as her chosen charity. As part of Dame Julie’s Master Cutler’s Challenge, we worked in partnership with many local businesses and organisations achieving some tremendous results. So much so that we decided to continue these fantastic partnerships with our Big House Heroes campaign to ensure that the wonderful work at Wentworth Woodhouse continues.

“Wentworth Woodhouse is not only one of the core pillars in South Yorkshire but one of the most exciting and challenging heritage projects of a generation. This crucial fundraising will contribute towards our goal of restoring and regenerating Wentworth Woodhouse so it can benefit the people of South Yorkshire and beyond, ensuring the House not only survives but becomes a leading visitor attraction and a catalyst for positive change in the years to come.”

Why Do We Need Your Help?

Although we have done lots to regenerate the site since the Trust took over in 2017, including restoring the roof and The Camellia House, this is really just the tip of the iceberg… There are rooms upon rooms within The Mansion and ‘Bedlam’ which are in a state of complete disrepair as well as The Stables and Cellars which require complete renovation.

What is the Big House Heroes Campaign?

The Big House Heroes campaign enables businesses and individuals who feel passionately about Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust’s work to help raise much-needed funds to enable us to continue our great work.

The fundraising is limitless… You have the freedom to organise any fundraising challenge you desire. It could be a bake sale, a sponsored walk or even a gaming marathon. Whatever event you choose, the Fundraising Team at Wentworth Woodhouse will support you along your journey. As a challenger you are welcome to visit our team at Wentworth Woodhouse to share ideas and draw on their experience.
