The Numbers: The Strawberry Hill Trust

The figures behind the charity responsible for the renovation and management of Strawberry Hill, the 18th century villa formerly owned by the writer Horace Walpole.

£3.09m: The charity's income for the year ending August 2010, compared with £2.13m in the previous year. It mostly came from grants and donations

£50,800: The cost of generating voluntary income, at a fundraising ratio of 1.6 pence in the pound. The previous year's ratio was 0.8 pence in the pound

£231k: Free reserves at year-end. The charity's target was to hold sufficient funds to meet the cost of 18 months' restoration work. This figure, with promised future income, would be sufficient to do so

5: Number of employee posts the charity had during the year. The charity did not list the highest salary it paid

£2.01m: The largest donation to the charity, from the Heritage Lottery Fund. A number of other heritage organisations also made substantial grants.
