In honor of tomorrow’s election day in the US, it seemed an appropriate time to consider the legacy of Winston Churchill.
With our appeal, we hope to acquire over 1,000 individual items that belonged to Sir Winston Churchill at Chartwell. This includes: six major awards, gifts and prizes, 12 freedom awards, 12 gifts from individuals and groups, 48 medallions, six personal souvenirs and 898 inscribed books. A successful fundraising appeal will ensure the historic collection can remain permanently at Chartwell for visitors and future generations to enjoy.
