How you can help
The Cellar is one of the two branches of the Warehouse Christian Trust, a Godalming based charity (Registration Number 277631). We rely largely on volunteers to operate and to fund the work we do.
Amongst those who have helped us with grants we are The Community Foundation for Surrey, Bishop of Guildford’s Community Fund, The Dora Fedoruk Memorial Fund, Godalming Town Council, Erica Leonard Trust, Waverley Voluntary Partnership, Godalming Lions, MJ Hindley Trust, Bucknill Masonic Lodge, local churches and many more…
In 2019, we receive a couple of substantial donations which have enabled us to completely refurbish the interior of The Cellar Café – our thanks go to the Peter Caudle Memorial Trust and the Guildford & District Construction Industry Training Group for which we, and those who come to the Cellar, will be forever grateful.
