Who are The Friends?

The Friends draw together all who love Malvern Priory.  Our mission is to promote knowledge and appreciation of the Priory, to encourage people to forge a personal link with it and to raise funds to help maintain, restore and enhance it.

To these ends, besides fund-raising and social events, the Friends are engaged in a variety of activities, including publishing Priory guide books, running regular guided tours, publicising events in the Priory and mounting events to generate enjoyment and appreciation of the Priory.  In addition, the Friends run The Friends' Shop in the Priory. Those who volunteer in the shop help provide a welcome to the Priory's many visitors as well as help raise funds for the Priory building.

Through their donations and subscriptions, all members have the privilege of contributing to the upkeep of the Priory's fabric, furnishings and adornment.  Thanks to the generosity of present and past benefactors, the Friends have, since 2000, made grants of £350,000 to the Priory PCC towards a range of important projects. Recently, we have committed £22,500 towards restoring the North Porch, the Priory's initial welcome to all who enter.
