The British Pilgrimage Trust is a Charitable Trust registered with HMRC for Gift Aid. We are a young charity, but we aim to grow. Please help us increase our capacity to fulfil our visions. We need financial support in order to create a sustainable future for British pilgrimage and our own organisation, through technology, infrastructure development and promotion.
We aim to help the restoration of pilgrimage as a British tradition, to fulfil modern requirements, using tools uniquely available today.
Britain once had a thriving pilgrimage tradition, and today we can renew this – in an inclusive form that offers a very traditional yet ‘real’ experience – as well as physical, mental, social, spiritual environmental and economic benefits for all involved.
Pilgrimage is the incredible future no-one saw coming. Please join us in making British pilgrimage the living tradition, open to all, that this land needs. We are working full-time to get our vision onto the path, and we need financial support to make this happen.
WHAT WE NEED:
Wages for our core staff
A part-time admin officer
1000 Pilgrim Staffs from Coppiced Kent woodland – which we aim to sell for £20 each (inc p&p) as a money-raising scheme, and also to help spread the visual distinction of a pilgrim from a hiker – through the scheme ‘Come Take the Staff’ – which matches 1 free staff donated to a holy place for each one purchased. So raise money for other holy places, as well as for the British Pilgrimage movement, with each staff bought. It’s a triple gift.
Improved film-making equipment. We currently use mobile phones to make films like this: (www.vimeo.com/britishpilgrimagehttps://vimeo.com/191136747). We think that upgrading equipment would be a wonderful investment in our capacity to develop further these ‘groundbreaking’ films about pilgrimage in Britain.
