One of the most valuable ways an individual can support the work of The Abbotsford Trust is by joining our UK Patrons Scheme.

In return for a committed gift of £5,000 per annum for three years, the Trust offers a range of activities, including free entrance, ‘behind the scenes’ updates, and access to Abbotsford staff and Trustees.

Abbotsford Patrons will also receive an exclusive picture of Sir Walter’s Scott’s faithful pets, Hinse and Maida, signed by the award-winning artist Catherine Rayner.

To find out more about the UK Patrons Scheme, please contact the Abbotsford Trust’s Chief Executive, Giles Ingram, via telephone on 01896 752043 or by email at
