Booking and Costs

As a Registered Charity, the Centre does not ask for a set fee to cover the cost of a stay at St. Oswald's but invites donations to support the work here. Guidelines below suggest contributions which would cover our costs. However, we do not wish to preclude any who cannot afford these prices and we hope that the generosity of those who can afford more will cover the shortfall of those who cannot. British taxpayers are invited to use Gift Aid for their donations.
