The Mercian Gathering is held:

 To honour the Old Gods

To create a sacred space for people of all Pagan paths to come together in a spirit of fellowship, reverence and sharing knowledge

To raise money for our chosen charities - £70,420 raised by 2017

(We mainly raise money for Warks Wildlife Sanctuary, but we have also donated to Stop the Cull, Preston New Road anti-fracking,  The Beacon (£20,000), an Arley animal rescue, we have sponsored three ME sufferers through the Lightning Process, plus small donations to Cerebra, Air Ambulance, and others)

Any and all profit goes to charity
