DONOR BOOK to mark the completion of the Caring for Kenwood project
English Heritage have produced a little booklet which records the huge undertaking of the last two years. In it, you will find a short description of the House and its collection, lots of Before and After photos, and finally a list of contributors to the project. 
The Friends of Kenwood take up a whole page, thanks to your wonderful generosity towards our Entrance Hall Appeal, and you can read it by clicking here.  If you would like to see a hard copy, you can come along to one of our lectures where we will have some available to view, or you can read it on our website, or get in touch with us at info@friendsofkenwood.org.uk You can also download the story.
