The Randell Cottage Writers Trust has ongoing financial commitments, including the maintenance of the cottage (which needs a new roof) and the garden. The Friends of the Randell Cottage support the Trust’s work through fund-raising and publicity efforts. You can help us out by making a tax-deductible donation to the Friends, either as a one-off gift or as a regular monthly payment.
