Buy A Brick
Generous donors helped save Chawton House one brick at a time by supporting our #BrickbyBrick campaign.
From 2017 to 2020 we raised over £33,000 via our #BrickbyBrick campaign. In 2020 we will be commissioning an architect’s drawing commemorating those who donated more than £100. The drawing will be kept at the house in perpetuity and donors will be informed and sent an image of it once it is ready.
