How you can help JOIN USMake a Donation

The Friends are there to support Little Malvern Priory when the need arises for both big and small projects. In 2002/3, for example, we contributed £118,000 toward the restoration of the church roof and over the past 10 years we have donated more than £150,000 to cover a range of refurbishment and other costs.

If you share our view that it is worth investing in the future of Little Malvern Priory, you can do this in the following ways.

1. Join us

The minimum annual membership subscription is £10. Your contribution – whether at this or a higher level – will be greatly appreciated.

Download the membership application form, which includes a standing order mandate and Gift Aid Declaration form. Once you have printed it off and completed it, please mail it to the address on the form.



2. Make a donation

If you wish to make a one-off donation, whether as well as or instead of joining, this can be made via Justgiving.

If you would prefer to pay by cheque, this should be made out to Friends of Little Malvern Priory and sent to the Treasurer, Friends of LMP, c/o 109A Wells Road, Malvern WR14 4PD. If you are a taxpayer, please download and complete a Gift Aid Declaration form and submit this with your cheque.

3. Make a bequest

A significant proportion of the contributions made over the years to the upkeep of Little Malvern Priory has only been possible because of the generous legacies received.

One of the benefits of making a charitable bequest from the donor’s perspective is that it can be paid only after you have retained funds to meet the many, varied and often unpredictable demands on your money during your lifetime and, even on your death, if you want, only after payments have been made to recipients you prioritise more highly.


The process of adding a Codicil to your Will, if you have made one, really is very simple. The core wording need be no more complicated than something along the following lines: 

“I (name) of (address) declare this to be my Codicil to my last Will dated (date). I give the sum of £…….. [or …. % of my residuary estate] to the Friends of Little Malvern Priory (Registered Charity no. 227995) for its general charitable purposes and I direct that the receipt of the Honorary Treasurer or duly authorised officer shall be a valid and appropriate form of discharge. In all other respects, I confirm my Will”.


A Codicil does of course have to be duly signed and witnessed like the original Will.

 It should be noted that the information provided here does not amount to legal advice – for that you should consult a solicitor.
