Thank you to our wonderful North American supporters…

The North American Friends of Chawton House (NAFCH) held a reception at the 2018 Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) AGM in Kansas in order to help raise funds for Chawton House. They certainly delivered, raising a sum of over $30,000 to support our work throughout their activities at the AGM!

Thank you to our NAFCH committee

A special thanks must be given to the entire team, who include President of NAFCH, Janine Barchas, for all of their hard work in organising the event: Deborah Barnum; Pam Braak; Inger Brodey; Linda Dennery; Bobbie Gay; Isobel Grundy; Gina King; Cheryl Kinney and Paul Savidge. All your efforts are vastly appreciated by the team on the ground at Chawton House. The money raised in Kansas will fund several exciting projects in the house and the wider grounds in 2019 – watch this space for more news in the coming months!

Thank you to Curly Tail productions and other private donors who kindly sponsored the reception.
