Fundraise for us

Running a book club, doing a sponsored activity or organising an appeal, could raise the funds that are needed to make roofs watertight, stop walls from crumbling, replace gutters and down-pipes, and the very many other day-to-day jobs that need doing, or even fund new initiatives. Help us with a social activity while having fun.



Make a donation

Frogmore Paper Mill is a registered charity and in order to, move forward; we need funds. We aim to offer an exciting experience for all who visit, whatever their interest or knowledge of paper; the interested general public, industry specialists and education groups. If you are willing to donate for a specific or general cause, we will be happy to receive it.



Volunteer with us

The Apsley Paper Trail charitable trust operates The Paper Trail Project at its two sites, Apsley Mills and Frogmore Mill. The project is run on a not-for-profit basis with the profits from all activities returned to the Trust in order to support the development and expansion of the project as a whole. This takes a lot of work and if you think you can help, please let us know.
