Helping Hand for the Hall
Petherton Arts Trust is the charity that runs The David Hall. Currently PAT receives no additional funding from external sources so heavily relies on ticket sales, a very active Fundraising Committee and at times, support from local Coop.
In 2019 Petherton Arts Trust conducted a building survey which indicated that a programme of maintenance and repairs was required. The building repairs focus on the roof, dormer windows, as well as re pointing and improving insulation. The first priority will be to remove the weather vane, and clear the guttering.
Petherton Arts Trust would appreciate your donation towards the building repairs and future improvements. Let’s keep this valued Community Venue open for years to come.
Here are the many ways you can donate and/or support.

Regular supporters of the David Hall and Petherton Arts Trust will be well aware how much we appreciate their financial help in the on-going and expensive work involved in maintaining and improving the fabric of the Hall.We have now embarked on an excellent new initiative through which you will be able to help us further when you are simply doing your regular online shopping: it really will not cost you anything. None of your financial details will be stored online and, once you register to support us, the Hall will get a small percentage donation from the online retailer. All the major online retailers have committed to the scheme (over 2700 of them, including Tesco, John Lewis, M&S, Argos, Amazon, Lakeland, eBay, Expedia, Travelodge, Premier Inns etc etc).
