We are currently updating our Just Giving page so please donate using alternative methods below in the meantime, it will be back soon.


This is a substantial project which may be undertaken in phases as sufficient funds become available.
The trustees need the financial support of trusts, foundations, companies and individuals interested in art appreciation or in the history and development of religious art in Scotland.

On any view the entire project will require substantial funds and donations are invited to meet the cost of the restoration of these nationally and internationally  significant works of art which are also important in the history of religious art in Scotland.

If you are making such a donation, Gift Aid allows us to claim a further 25 % at no further cost to the donor, and is to be encouraged where applicable. Please add Gift Aid if you are eligible to do so.

An alternative method of payment is to send a cheque, payable to the Runciman Apse Trust, to The Treasurer, Runciman Apse Trust, St Patrick’s RC Church, 40 High Street, Old Town, Edinburgh EH1 1TQ. In doing so please ask for a Gift Aid form, if you have not already filled one in.

By whatever means you choose to give, your donation will be greatly appreciated and put to good use in restoring and recovering significant works of art for this generation and future generations to appreciate.

Please give what you can.
