---- Where does our money come from? ----
The Friends of Troopers Hill fund their activities from a variety of sources. The most important contribution is from our members, who have given many hours of their time to ensure that The Friends of Troopers Hill have become one of the most successful groups in Bristol.

Many volunteer hours have have been recorded at Work Parties but many more hours have been spent by volunteers helping at events (we can now put up gazebos in any weather!); attending meetings; building this website and carrying out general administrative tasks. As well as time, a lot of paper, printer ink and stamps have been donated - our thanks to everyone. If you would like to volunteer to help us then please see our Volunteering Page.
However, we could not have achieved all that we have without some hard cash. Details of the grants and larger donations we have received are given below, with some notes on how the money has been spent.
Although we have been very successful in the past raising grants; there is always more that we would like to do and it is difficult to raise funds for running costs such as paper, ink, postage, meeting room charges, replacing tools and paying for our website name. There also the costs of the events we arrange.
To make a donation either contact or make a cheque payable to "Friends of Troopers Hill" and send it to Treasurer, Friends of Troopers Hill, c/o 3 Corkers Hill, St George, Bristol, BS5 8DT.
A BIG thank you to all the organisations listed below and everyone who has supported Friends of Troopers Hill since we were formed in 2003.
