Contributions & Donations

The Friends of Smithills Hall are a registered charity (1038507) which survives on membership and public support through fees and donations. These help us provide activities in and around the Hall. We provide volunteers to look after the gardens, guides to take visitors around the Hall buildings and funds to support for a variety of activities and projects, in partnership with Bolton Council.

Financial support is our lifeblood and is very much welcomed and appreciated.

You can help by using any of the following methods: –


The Friends of Smithills Hall has registered with SmileAmazon to be available to benefit from Amazon donations to charitable organizations selected by customers.

AmazonSmile is a website operated by that lets customers buy as normal, but customers select a charity to benefit from a no cost donation from eligible purchases (0.5% of purchases excluding VAT, returns and shipping fees). Although these are small amounts the combination of customers selecting the Friends for donations will make a useful contribution to our charitable activities.

This link below will take you to the appropriate Amazon web page.
