A personal message from the Keeper

Dear friends text

For the first 13 years of the Trust’s life I have happily met virtually all its day to day running expenses including most acquisitions.

Our ‘Friends’ organisation was founded to raise money for our Endowment Fund so as to underwrite the Trust’s future when I am no longer able.

Importantly I extend heartfelt thanks to all who have given generously already. Like planting a tree future generations will reap the reward.

However, the need to continue building this fund accelerates as I am now over 80. So, for 2017 I have set a target of raising another £5,000.

To make donating easy we have created a ‘JUST GIVING’ webpage and details of all methods of donating are shown on the right of this page.

Our principal ‘Friends’ fundraising event for 2017 is The Cobbold History Charity Ride 2017 which takes place from Holywells Park, Ipswich on 30th April 2017. It is of course open to all Friends & Family to ride and/or sponsor. 

To take part please email 

Please give us your support otherwise I fear the good work of the past may be lost.

Thank you.
