Donations and Cancellations

Payment of Donations

Upon confirmation of your group booking, to secure your place we would appreciate a donation equal to 10% of the full donation.

Your full donation will then be expected 40 days prior of the date of your expected arrival – should this donation not be received we will consider your request to secure our facilities for your group as cancelled. As such, we will not be expecting you on the day of arrival and will have no obligation to provide any facilities or resources to your group.

1. To make your donation by cheque:

Make the cheque payable to WRCDT-SPEC, and send it to the Diocesan Finance Department at the address shown below (please write the name of your school/parish on the back of the cheque with the retreat date):

Administration Office
SPEC Retreat Centre
125 Waxwell Lane

Phone: 020 3757 2500

2. To make your donation by bank transfer:

You can make your final payment by bank transfer to:

Sort code: 40-05-20
Account number: 81672134

Quoting reference: SPEC and your school/parish name.

Our retreats are donation-based only. We would very much appreciate a donation that allows us to offset the cost of running your retreat.


Should you no longer require our facilities, please inform us within 30 days of the date of arrival, otherwise we will be unable to return any of your donation. This is because we would already have used this to offset all the costs for your visit.

Should you cancel outside of 30 days we will return 75% of your confirmation donation. The remain 25% will only be returned if we are able to rebook our facilities for a similar event during the period that your group originally reserved.
